Several basic models are available, which are modified to suit the needs of each particular golf course.

In addition, each customer (i.e., golf course) customizes its golf carts with its own color scheme and logo. The company typically makes all of the golf carts for a customer before starting work on the nest customer's golf carts. Below are listed a number of activities and costs a Green Glidr Corporation:

a. The purchasing department orders the specific color of paint specified by the customer from the company's supplier.
