Next will be presented the data related to two experiences where CMI pads were tested against conventional pads. As far as I am concern CMI has two moves to make in the short-run.

Curled Metal Technology could be successfully applied in the driving process of piles. Market Demand Minimum Maximum Units The value delivered to the customers will be essentially composed by time saving on rental machinery and time saving on wages. This is the so called Perceived-Value Pricing.
Cost Leadership, Differentiation and Focus. Moreover they were made from hazardous materials that could cause accidents involving human losses and material losses. We can consider time burdening, using conventional pads, as an opportunity cost of losing another project by inefficient usage of time in the current project.
These are very important figures for the sales force team. We can either chose to produce with current equipment on the plan or investing in a new tooling.
As the working time is decreased by the usage of CMI Pads, contractors are able to do provide more services per unit of time. Secondly Industry sources estimated that another 6.
First, a report by Construction Engineering magazine estimated that about As the result of launching this new and completely different product, CMI had the opportunity to positioning themselves in the Differentiation quadrant.
From this estimative for the number of pile hammers On the upper side of the interval we have the value that is perceived by the customer. Engineered Products Division Using a conservative estimation of Summing up the total components of the cost and dividing by the number of CMI pads in a set the experiences used only one CMI set each we obtain the value delivered by each CMI cushion pad.
