product from early manufacturing run


Explanation:
I take it from the context you provided that you're really asking about 初期流動品, not just 流動品. I'm not very familiar with manufacturing terminology, but based on the Japanese page I reference here, I would guess 初期流動 corresponds to "early production run" in English. It gets pretty wordy to say "product from early manufacturing run" but not sure of a better way to phrase it. Maybe shorten to "early mfg. run product"

Hope that helps.

neutral  Port City: Now I understand what you mean. You referred strictly to C above. Then, "production" may be sufficient to indicate a phase following the "initial production" stage.

  -> Thank you for understanding. Typically there are three stages in production: trial, initial production and production.
