The expanding product lines of the Manufacturers presents ITSO Good with the
option of having multiple Manufacturers supplying the same product. And in the
face of stiff pricing competition within the market, ITSO Good have quickly
decided to enter into a volume-based agreements with their small, medium, and
large-scale manufacturing partners.
As a result, ITSO Good have come up with the following additional business
requirements:

product quantity (volume) to different manufacturing partners.
2. ITSO Good also plans to enter into agreements with some more
manufacturing partners to support their growing order volumes, therefore they
