We currently have customers whom we will accept blanket orders for, for up to six months. They usually call and beg to extend toward the end of the order and we sometimes allow it. I would like to know what others do, when the customer is upfront and tells you they want to place an order for 500 parts with deliveries starting with 100 pieces in March 2024 and shipping 100 pieces every 3-1/2 months out through 08/2025. This is for an aerospace customer. Do you guys buy all the material and produce parts upfront? Do you buy for a couple of releases and hope when you buy for the remainder, that the price hasn't gone up? If it goes up or down, do you go back to your customer with the part increase or decrease? My boss wants to be a stickler about our 6-month rule, but I think this is going to make us miss out on opportunities that I am working hard to land. Your input is appreciated.
