Percy (2008) on the other hand contend that there are costs associated with promotion, and when a promotion is too successful, the unexpected increased costs can have a
By matching price to demand, hoteliers have a greater opportunity to capture higher profitability business during high demand periods. On the flip side, lower flexible rates during low demand season help generate additional demand that might not have existed before. Although, it is always wise to set a floor price, which should be equal to the lowest “positioning” price that you might be willing to accept for your product. The challenge of having a dynamic structure is that the revenue managers need to be on top of their game to manage demand as it is very easy to lose control of inventory if forecasting is erroneous. Having a revenue management system minimizes these errors; however, the majority of hotels today do not have a revenue management system as it could be expensive or might not have been budgeted.
Research and development for the half pallet provides information about the interest in and design desired for the company to act on but those efforts will be fruitless without proper manufacturing processes. Analyzing likely production output, cycle times, potential delays and facility layout will help to improve the manufacturing process and efficiency to an end of increasing company profit, due to reduced cost, and customer value. Cycle Time and Meeting Customer Demand Introducing a pallet into the pooled industry will initially require a much higher cycle time until the fleet is adequate to meet demand. After equilibrium between demand and fleet availability is reached, those pallets coming back from retailers will be remanufactured requiring only damaged components to be replaced and reducing production cycle time greatly. During the initial manufacturing stage it is necessary to consider the total number of pallets likely needed to meet demand.

The evolution of new products with huge reach also forces established products into
In order for the value of Gatorade to remain as that of a premium product, the future strategy should stay focused on keeping pricing on the high side whilst strengthening relationships with its loyal customers. 4.2 Gatorade supply / demand and price elasticity One of the factors that might change the demand for a product is the prices of related goods. Since Gatorade and Powerade are substitutes of each other, when Gatorade increases its price, according to the law of demand it will fall and fewer products are sold. On the other hand if its competitor which is a similar product keeps the pricing constant, will see an increase in sales, consumers switch to it and hence the demand curve for Powerade will move towards the right. Other factors that can change the demand for Gatorade include change in: • Income levels • Natural factors such as earthquakes and hurricanes • Market size • Taste and
