The United Manufacturing Cooperative primarily functions as a sort of 'middle man' between major cooperate, government, and military entities. Through the United Manufacturing Cooperative, affiliated organizations can collaborate in regard to design, production, distribution, and marketing. Through the collaborative process, the UMC delivers a wide range of products and services at minimal cost and high availability.
By utilizing a collaborated process, the UMC can pull together the technologies available to any one of its contributing organizations, and utilize the technology in a cooperative process. Through the cooperative process, new technologies and products can be developed by the UMC as its own unique development.
Each individual contributing organization which is part of the UMC delivers it's own contribution to the productive process. Larger entities such as the MFY and Lorath Matriarchy contribute such tools as nanoconstruction technologies and automation processes. Smaller entities such as the Helashio Tribes contribute through manpower. Through this combined process, the UMC is capable of producing products at minimal cost with optimal output.
The process of moving products from one point to another has long been an obstacle for large corporate entities. However, due to the resources available to the UMC, starships, personnel, and vendor locations are readily available. Ships of the Lorath Matriarchy, Motoyoshi Fleetyards, Lorath Self Defense Force, United Peacekeeper Forces, and other affiliates each do their part to deliver goods on behalf of the UMC.
By combining the marketing capabilities of the contributing groups, the UMC is capable of reaching out to various governments, organizations, civilizations, and peoples. Marketing for the UMC is conducted in Yamataian, Nepleslian, Lorath, and machine code 2) languages.
