Hi, can somebody help me how to calculate the co-efficients for each of the five forces. I understand all of the 5 forces might not be having the same weight. Also it would differ by industry. (...) Read more? Sign up for free

Calculating the Forces

In order for this analysis tool to be effective, you may want to consider a few aspects:
A) In order to solve any optimization problem you need to apply the right formula m(x;y;z;... n)
B) This method stands for a non-numeric type of analysis. It is very hard to determine, whether a co-efficient would be effective or not. Yet, a few of them may be calculated. I'm not quite certain about them, but for example:
Competitors: it would be interesting to know how many competitors exist in the whole market. By knowing this amount, you may decide which style of scale economy you need. If there are only 2 rivals in the same market, you may choose a Stackelberg model, by simply defining your price as a leader, hence: P = a - b [q1+r2(q1)]; where r2 stands for the reaction.
