We know that companies get maximum benefits from R&D in the earlier years and with the passage of time the advantage starts diminishing as the competitors or company itself can come up with the new R&D. Therefore in the later years of a product the company bears the R&D presence in its books but the real advantage does not hold good in these years. Therefore I think that the amortization should be larger in the earlier years of R&D.
