Haiti’s 2010 earthquake was caused from two sides of the fault line moving past each other in an east and west direction, resulting in a geological catastrophe. This is contributed by its geographical location. In addition, Haiti was not doing well before the earthquake due to the poor infrastructure. The earthquake at its height was recorded to be a 7.0 on the Richter Scale. Various geological components of the earthquake caused tremendous aftermath.
The Red Pyramid is just over 300 feet tall topping off the first three in height. The last three pyramids were built with an angle elevation of 52 degrees which is a big jump from the bent style pyramid which was on 43 ½ degrees. The Khufu Pyramid, built for the second king of the 4th dynasty, was well over 400 feet tall. The Khufu Pyramid is the pyramid that has stayed intact the most compared to the other six pyramids.

Ordinary Portland cement (OPC) is acknowledged as the major construction material throughout the world. The production rate is approximately 2.1 billion tons per year and is expected to grow to about 3.5 billion tons per year by 2015 (Coulinho, 2003) in (Ajileye, 2012). According to Adepegba (1989) in Ajileye (2012), the annual cement requirement in Nigeria is about 8.2 million tons and only 4.6 million tons of Portland cement is produced locally. The balance of 3.6 million tons or more is imported. If alternative cheap cement can be produced locally, the demand for Portland cement will reduce.

This method can be very effective when dealing with new product or new technologies 2. Time series: Time series forecasting method is done by using historical demand information. The basic concept of the time series method is that the past demand is good indicator for doing forecast of future demand. This method is very effective for the products with steady demand and when the demand pattern does not vary that much from one year to the next year. These are one of the simplest methods to implement in practical field and can provide good starting point to do forecasting (Chopra & Meindl 2007, 186-190) (Emmett & Granville 2007,
The Himalayas to the north, the Meghalaya plateau to the south and the hills of Nagaland, Mizoram and Manipur to the east influences the climate.
