My qualifications, including a list of my publications and past testimony at trial and by deposition, are contained in my curriculum vitae. which is attached as Appendix H to this report. I am compensated at the rate of $750 per hour for my work in this case.

As I understand the issues in this case, Dentsply International is the leading producer of artificial teeth in the U.S. market. Estimates of its current share ranges from 65 to 80 percent of the U.S. market. Currently, Dentsply distributes its teeth through dealers, and if a dealer adds a competitive line of prefabricated artificial teeth, Dentsply severs its relationship with that dealer.

Other producers of artificial teeth, such as Vita and Ivoclar, have had a difficult time in penetrating the U.S. market. What is not known about this market is the role that the following marketing variables play in influencing dental laboratory technicians' choices of artificial teeth brands:

  • Type of distribution - dealers versus direct distribution by manufacturer
  • Price

The objective of this study that I have been asked by the United States to conduct, is to produce an appropriate representative sample and generate data that will provide a basis for establishing empirically the relative importance of these factors and a basis for estimating the expected share of Dentsply and its competitors under various scenarios of the above two marketing variables.

In addition to the data generated by the survey I conducted, which is incorporated into this report, I considered other documents including various documents generally describing the artificial tooth market, marketing and promotional materials for several brands of prefabricated artificial teeth, and the Complaint filed by the United States in this case.


A. Research Design

I designed and directed a study among dental laboratory technicians as a tradeoff conjoint study focusing on key variables associated with the product, distribution and price offerings of seven suppliers: Dentsply, Vita, Ivoclar, Myerson, Universal, Kenson and Justi.

The study is designed as a conjoint analysis study that generates the data providing a basis for various types of modeling including the PRIDEM and PRIDEL Models. The paper documenting these models is included in Appendix A attached to this report.

The study was designed as a TMT (Telephone recruitment, Mail follow-up and main Telephone interview) study.

B. Universe and Sample


The universe was defined as dental lab technicians responsible for the selection of plastic artificial teeth purchased by the lab for use in making dentures.


A representative national probability sample was selected from the universe of dental lab technicians responsible for the selection of plastic artificial teeth purchased by the lab for use in making dentures. The sample size included 274 respondents, one per laboratory.

The sampling procedure involved 3 phases:

  1. A national sample list of 10,000 dental laboratories was obtained from Survey Sampling, Inc. located in Fairfield, CT. Their business and professional lists are compiled from continuously updated yellow page listings, nationwide. The list of 10,000 laboratories was divided into 10 replicates of 1,000.
  2. Guideline Research, a New York-based national marketing research firm with whom I have worked on similar studies, received the 10 replicates and opened one replication at a time, with the instruction to stert at the beginning of the first replicate and work through all the names in that replicate before beginning the second replicate. A total of 2,520 respondents were called to generate the final sample of respondents. A minimum of 3 dialing attempts was made for each number before eliminating that number from the sample.
  3. The respondents were screened to meet the following requirements:
          Laboratory must fabricate dentures using plastic artificial teeth
          Respondent must be responsible for selecting the plastic artificial teeth that the laboratory uses
          Respondent had to be willing to participate (accept receipt of the packet)

The detailed screening results are included in Appendix G.

C. The Questionnaire

The main part of the questionnaire was Part B which consisted of a tradeoff exercise in which each respondent received 8 stimuli cards containing experimentally designed scenarios describing Dentsply and each of its competitors. Each competitor was named - Dentsply, Vita, Ivoclar, etc. The starting, or reference scenario - Exhibit 1 on the following page - showed base price and distribution for each supplier.1 Subsequent experimentally designed scenarios varied price and distribution mode for the various brands to measure the respondent tradeoffs. For each scenario, the respondent was asked to allocate 100 points across the suppliers, reflecting his/her total plastic tooth purchases from each supplier over the next three months given the distribution and price conditions shown.

In addition, in Part A of the questipnnaire, a selected set of respondent background characteristics (lab size, shares of current tooth suppliers, years in business, etc.) and preferences were collected.

Part A of the questionnaire and the instructions for responding to Part B are included in Appendix E.

[This is the reference (C141) card sent to all respondents]

D. The Stimuli

Each respondent received 8 Scenario cards. The top card in each set is the reference card, C-141; the remaining cards represent a block of 7 (shuffled) cards drawn from a block of the master design (Appendix B). Exhibit 1, shows C-141, the reference card. The 140 experimental cards (numbered from C-1 through C-140) appear in 20 blocks of 7 cards each; their designs appear in Appendix B - the master experimental design. Appendix C contains seven illustrative stimuli cards.


The first 8 columns of the master experimental design contain the pricing information for the 8 primary brands; the 4 Dentsply brands - BIOFORM IPN, BIOBLEND IPN, PORTRAIT IPN, TRUBLEND SLM, and Ivoclar SR VIODENT PE, Myerson DURABLEND SPECIAL RESIN, Universal VERILUX and Vita VITAPAN, respectively. The prices for Dentsply CLASSIC, Justi BLEND and Kenson RESIN are fixed throughout the design at the prices shown in the reference scenario, Card C-141, in Exhibit 1. The experimental prices for the 8 primary brands are shown in Exhibit 2. As noted, there are four price levels for each primary brand. As noted above, the 3 secondary brands have fixed prices - the same as those shown in Exhibit 1.

Distributor Availability

Exhibit 3 shows the master coding for availability. There are 7 levels for this variable. Columns 9 through 13 of Appendix B show the availability codes for the active products. Column 9 is applicable for all of the five Dentsply brands' availability. Columns 10 through 13 of Appendix B show the availability coding for SR VIVODENT PE, DURABLEND SPECIAL RESIN, VERILUX and VITA, respectively. Justi BLEND and Kenson RESIN both received an availability coding of: Yes - Yes - Yes throughout all of the experimental cards.

E. Data Collection

The data collection was conducted at my direction by Guideline Research.

The data collection consisted of a TMT design in which respondents were screened by telephone (screener questionnaire is included in Appendix D). Following that, they were sent by priority mail 2 envelopes consisting of a questionnaire (Appendix E) and 8 stimulus cards (one of the 20 blocks of the master design outlined in Appendix B and illustrated in Appendix C). Four to five days later they received a second telephone call and instructions on how to complete the forms. They were asked to return the completed forms and the stimuli to Guideline Research.

The field instructions were prepared by Guideline Research and are included in Appendix F. Neither the interviewers nor the respondents were informed of the purpose or sponsor of the study.

The data generated by the responses to Parts A and B of the questionnaire is incorporated into this report and contained, respectively, in the computer files titled "dental.as1" and "dental.as2."

F. Data Analysis

One method that can be used to analyze the data produced by this survey is the PRIDEM/PRIDEL model developed by Paul Green and Abba Krieger (and described in Appendix A). This model enables the user to "parse out" the effect of each experimentally manipulated variable on respondents' tradeoffs across suppliers. Respondent background attributes from Part A of the questionnaire are included in the model in order to examine their segmentation effects.

The initial analysis focused on 3 scenarios:

  1. Base scenario: Current market conditions at the time the survey was designed and conducted, as reflected in the base stimulus card (C-141) with one exception: that Vita is not available from a local dealer (for the reasons noted in the section above describing the questionnaire).
  2. Scenario 2: Vita and Ivoclar are available from a local dealer and from the manufacturer directly but not from a mail order dealer, and the price variable will remain the same as the base scenario for Vita and Ivoclar (all price and distribution variables remain the same as the base scenario for each of the other brand/lines);
  3. Scenario 3: Vita and ivoclar are available from all three distribution options: local dealer, mail order dealer, and from the manufacturer directly, and the price variable will remain the same as the base scenario for Vita and Ivoclar (all price and distribution variables remain the same as the base scenario for each of the other brand/lines).


The initial results produced by the PRIDEM/PRIDEL model for three key scenarios are included in Exhibit 4 on the following page.

This model allows for the calculation of expected share for any scenario based on the factors and levels included in the study (and listed in Exhibits 2 and 3).

Scenario 3
Vita and Ivodar are available from all three distribution options: local dealer, mail order dealer, and from the manufacturer directly; the price variable remains the same as the base scenario for Vita and Ivodar (all price and distribution variables remain the same as the base scenario for each of the other brand/lines)

6.25% 24% 4.44% 32%


This study, using conjoint analysis methodology, which is generally accepted and commonly used for assessing respondent's trade-offs among key marketing variables, was designed to generate data that allows analysis to:

  1. Establish empirically the relative importance of types of distribution and price in dental laboratory technicians1 choices of artificial teeth brands
  2. Estimate the expected share of Dentsply and its competitors under various scenarios of the above two marketing variables

The survey was conducted at my direction according to generally accepted professional scientific standards for survey research used in litigation in order to assure the objectivity of the entire process.

The findings of the study using the PRIDEM/PRIDEL model as summarized in Exhibit 4 show that:

  • In the base case reflecting generally prevailing market conditions at the time the survey was designed and conducted, in which Ivoclar and Vita are unavailable from local or mail order dealers, the expected share of
    • Ivoclar is 5.05%
    • Vita is 3.37%
  • In a scenario in whjch Ivoclar and Vita are available from only local dealer and manufacturer, the share of
    • Ivoclar is 6.84%, an increase of 35%
    • Vita is 3.69%, an increase of 9%
  • In a scenario in which Ivoclar and Vita are available from all three distribution modes manufacturer, mail order or local dealer, the share of
    • Ivociar is 6.25%, an increase of 24% vs. the base case
    • Vita is 4.44%, an increase of 32% vs. the base case

1 The reference scenario card showed Vita VITAPAN as being available from a local dealer, because for some labs this is technically accurate; however, as I understand the facts, this is not the existing market condition for the majority of labs in the United States, and was not at the time the data was collected. This was, accordingly, adjusted for during the analysis (as discussed in section F, page 12).

Theory and Methodology

Modeling competitive pricing and market share: Anatomy of a decision support system *

Paul E. Green and Abba M. Krieger

The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Steinberg Hall-Dietrich Hall, Philadelphia, PA 19104-6371, USA

Received December 1989; revised July 1990

Abstract: Even with today's high emphasis on management decision support systems, relatively little has been published on the motivations, tribulations, and post mortems that generally accompany the development of such systems. This paper reports (in a mixture of narrative style and more formal model exposition) how a computerized decision support system for optimal price determination was developed, implemented, and finally applied to a broad range of industry problems.

Keywords: Pricing; demand analysis; conjoint analysis; multiattribute preference

1. Introduction

Product and service pricing is one of the oldest (and still very important) tools of the marketing executive. Each day business firms face questions like the following:

1. Competitor X has just increased its price by five percent. Should we match it, or stand pat?

2. How should we price our new product, which offers several technical advantages over current offerings?

3. How should we set prices among competing items in our current product line?

Answers to these questions are hard to find for at least two reasons. First, given a set of existing prices and market shares for products in a competing product class, it is often difficult to predict new shares accurately if one or more prices were to change. Second, it is difficult to predict how competitors will react to others' price changes.

Marketing researchers have dealt with the first question by proposing several new marketing research methods that show promise for augmenting information obtained from older approaches. Historically, the measurement of price-demand relationships has relied on statistical methods applied to either cross-sectional or time series data (e.g., Wittink, 1977). However, newer approaches, such as those based'on laboratory studies (Pessemier, 1960), instore experiments (Doyle and Gidengil, 1977), test market simulation (Silk and Urban, 1978), and willingness-to-pay surveys (Monroe and Delia Bitta, 1978) have received increased attention and, in some cases, commercial application.

Even more recently, conjoint-based methods (Mahajan, Green, and Goldberg, 1982; Louviere and Woodworth, 1983; Wyner, Benedetti, and Trapp, 1984) have considered explicitly designed competitive product profile descriptions. Respondents either pick their preferred choice from the set of alternatives, indicate their likelihood of choosing each option, or state their preferences for alternative allocations of a common resource across products or activities competing for that resource (Carroll, Green, and DeSarbo, 1979).

A prototypical procedure entailing tradeoff techniques is that proposed by Mahajan, Green, and Goldberg (MGG). Their survey data collection approach is a modification of one originally proposed by Jones (1975). Respondents are shown profile descriptions of P products, each with an associated brand name and price. Profiles are designed according to fractional factorials in which attributes and levels are idiosyncratic to each brand. Respondents allocate a constant sum (typically 100 points) across each stimulus option indicating the likelihood that they would choose each option, given the stated prices for each alternative. MGG employ a conditional logit model (Theil, 1969) to estimate parameter values that satisfy the following sum and range constraints:

1. The estimated probability of choosing some p-th brand ranges between zero and one.

2. The sum of the choice probabilities across all P brands (including an all-other-brands category, if appropriate) equals unity.

While MGG discuss how their approach might be used in actual business situations, they also add that their experience with applying the model to real-world problems is quite limited.

1.1. Inputs from the business world

As we mulled over the idea of adapting some of the conjoint methodology to the measurement and strategy issues related to optimal pricing, we sought the advice of several commercial marketing research firms. Gradually, a pattern emerged regarding their views about what managers would like to see in a price/demand model:

1. The approach should be able to utilize survey methods, similar to the kinds of buyer trade off data that are collected in applied conjoint studies.

2. The model should be able to consider not only the impact of price changes on market share but also the effect on share of non-price attribute changes on the part of any or all competitors.

3. The model should be able to make market share predictions at both the total market and individual market segment levels.

4. The model should be capable of examining interactions among different competitors' prices and non-price attribute levels.

5. The model should be 'decomposable' in the sense of allowing the client to focus attention on the behavior of a single product's share as a function of individual competitors' prices and non-price activities.

6. The model should be capable of being calibrated to actual starting (i.e., existing) market shares and prices.

7. The model should contain an 'optimizing' feature in which the user can find the best price for a given product, conditional on fixed prices for competitors and specified levels of all non-price attributes, self and competitors.

8. The model should be flexible enough to allow interpolation across discrete price points.

9. The model should be user friendly and, if possible, adaptable to a personal computer.

With these desiderata in mind, we set about the task of constructing a suitable data collection method, parameter estimation technique, and price optimizing routine.

1.2. Borrowing from the past

Fortunately, earlier work in componential segmentation (Green, Krieger, and Zelnio, 1989) led to the development of a conjoint model for forecasting buyers' likelihoods of purchase from information about product attribute preferences and buyer backgrounds (e.g., demographics, life styles, current brand usage, etc.). The PROSIT (PROduct SITuation) model contained a number of relevant features for the current effort, namely PROSITs ability to estimate parameter values for both product attributes and buyer attributes, as well as selected two-way, within-set and between-set interactions.

Furthermore, PROSIT contained an optimizing feature wherein one could find the best product profile for a given market segment or the best segment for a given product.

In the PROSIT model, all parameters are estimated as though each predictive variable is categorical (i.e., predictors are treated as dummy-variables in the spirit of conjoint analysis). The response variable is 'univariate' - typically, a buyer's subjective likelihood of choosing a specific and or service supplier as a joint function of product profiles (for that brand and competitive brands) and respondent background varibles.

In contrast, our present problem emphasized an underlying continuous variable (i.e., price) and entailed a 'multivariate' response, namely, the respondent's subjective likelihood of choosing each of P products as a function of their product attributes, their prices, and the buyer's background attributes. Still, the earlier PROSIT model seemed like a good place to start. On the plus side, it had been successfully applied in a variety of industrial applications (particularly in the phamaceutical and computer industries) and had already been adapted for interactive, personal computer applications.

2. Decisions, decisions

At this point we had a starting point for the PRIce-DEMand model (PRIDEM). However, a number of decisions still had to be made on adapting the PROSIT model for pricing and, in particular, incorporating a multivariate response variable, PROSIT was estimated by OLS dummy variable regression. Its optimizer employed a heuristic for finding optimal combinations of product and/or segment attribute levels from the full Cartesian product set of attribute levels. In contrast, our current interest centered on price optimization, conditional on given settings of all other attributes.

2.1 Handling the price attribute

In keeping with conjoint methodology, it seemed appropriate to maintain the treatment of all attributes (including price) as categorical, encoded as dummy variables. From a pragmatic viewpoint this would allow us to use a portion of the same software already in place for fitting the PROSIT model. Second, we could avail ourselves of highly efficient, fractional factorial designs for setting up the product and price stimulus design that would estimate all main effects as well as selected two-way interactions. Moreover, these (orthogonal) designs are flexible enough to accommodate enough price levels (e.g., five in nine per brand) to approximate a continuous part-worth function rather closely.

Why not just select a polynomial (e.g., quadratic) to represent part worths for the price variable? One of the problems with this approach is that the resulting curve is sensitive to error. In fact, il is possible that the fitted curve could depart rather markedly from the actual response associated with the experimentally designed price points. Clearly, with polynomial fitting there is no requirement that the curve 'go through' the response value observed at each discrete experimental price point.

In contrast, by using splines we could make sure that the response function passed through the knots (i.e., price points). Furthermore, we could make the function smooth between each pair of knots so that simple (classical) methods ol optimization could be used to find the solution that maximized the sponsors contribution to overhead and profit (conditional on fixed prices for competitive products).

Accordingly, we set up a computer routine for fitting one and two-dimensional splines where the knots represented the discrete price levels used in the original experimental design underlying the competitive product profiles. The Appendix describes this procedure.

2.2. Making the model multicariate

A second problem with the adaptation of PROSIT to PRIDEM was how to deal with the multivariate response variable. The PROSIT model is fit by ANOVA-like, OLS regression. If the original PROSIT response variable were quantal (e.g., 1 or 0) or if the response were each respondent's subjective likelihood of purchase on a 0 to 1.0 scale, no attempt was made in PROSIT to transform it to a logit (as was done in Mahajan, Green, and Goldberg, 1982).

Why not, then, set up a multinomial logit model with brand and product interactions, rather than fitting individual linear probability models and then finding market shares on a post hoc basis? We chose to maintain OLS fitting and the linear probability model for two reasons. First, the PROSIT model has a rather elaborate, built-in cross validation feature which we wished to retain for assessing the predictive accuracy of prices, market segments, and non-price attributes on a single products likelihood of purchase. This could be applied to each product, in turn, as a way to see if some part worth functions are poorly estimated.

Second, despite the theoretical attractiveness of the multinomial logit (see Mahajan, Green, and Goldberg, 1982), we noted that Brodie and De Kluyver (1984) have reported that linear probability models, with post hoc adjustment (to respect non-negativity and sum constraints), have fared as well as the more complex multinomial logit models in terms of empirical market share validation. (Still, it should be mentioned that the current structure of PRIDEM could be reformulated in terms of a multinomial logit.)

With these preliminary decisions made, it was then time to formulate the model.

3. The PRIDEM model

To motivate our description of the PRIDEM model, consider a situation in which a pharmaceutical firm wishes to increase the price of its antihypertensive drug brand A. There are five other competing brands in the market niche of interest to brand A's producers: B, C, D, E, and F. The producers of brand A are able to estimate per-unit variable production/distribution costs for each of the six competitive brands.

In designing the marketing research survey, brand A's producers considered four price levels each for brands A, B and C, three levels each for D and E, and two levels for the more remote competitor, brand F. In addition, they selected one three-level non-price attribute describing brand A's dosage schedule: once daily, twice daily, or three times daily.

A conjoint orthogonal design of 64 profile descriptions was set up. Each respondent received eight of the profile descriptions, drawn from the master design. For each description the respondent was asked to allocate 100 points across the six competitive brands so as to reflect the proportion of hypertensive patients for whom each drug would be prescribed, under the stated conditions. (Prior to this task each respondent similarly evaluated a base-case profile showing the current prices of each brand and brand A's current dosage level of three times daily.) Figure 1 shows an illustrative stimulus card for one of the experimental conditions.

Figure 1. Illustrative stimulus card

Respondents were classified, a priori, by five segment attributes: specialty (cardiologists versus general practitioners); age (under 35, 35 and older); type of practice (solo versus group): current brand favorite (brand A versus others): and patient load, within specialty (above median versus below median).1

3.1. Preliminaries

In describing the PRIDEM model more formally, we first consider the question of estimating the market shares for each brand, as a function of manipulated product/price variables and respondent characteristics. Market shares are assumed to depend on three types of attributes: (a) market segment attributes; (b) non-price (e.g., product) attributes; and (c) price attributes. We let

l1 , l2 ,...., lS

denote the number of levels associated with each of the S segment attributes. In the illustrative problem these attributes describe the decision makers, such as specialty (cardiologist, general practitioner), age (under 35, 35 and over), and so on.

Similarly, we let

m1 , m2 ,...., mr

denote the number of levels associated with each of the T non-price attributes. In the illustrative problem there is only one non-price attribute: dosage (once daily, twice daily, three times daily).

Finally, the market shares are also assumed to depend on the brands' prices. We assume R Less than or equal toP price attributes; this allows for the case in which a subset of size P - R of the P brands does not vary with respect to price. We let

n1 , n2 ,...., nR

denote the number of levels of each of the R price attributes. To simplify notation, we further assume that the brands are ordered, so that brand i refers to the brand whose price is varying in price attribute i. Associated with each level of each price attribute an actual price (e.g., m dollars per day's therapy). Prices are denoted by:

llrj    r = 1, 2.....R:   j = 1, 2.....n?

We shall use i, j, and k to subscript attribute levels in general.

3.2. Segment components

The segment attributes are used to define the universe over which the market shares are computed. We specify a segment by assigning selected attribute levels to the S segment attributes. We can combine segments by aggregation. More generally, we can construct any universe of interest by a set of non-negative segment weights. wsj,    s = 1, 2.....S:   j = 1, 2.....l,

so that

= 1    for s = 1, 2.....S.

In particular, a given segment with levels (i1 , i2 ,...., iS) is captured by setting

wj??    for j = 1, 2.....S


wj?k = 0; otherwise.

Through the use of weighting coefficients PRIDEM can select a specific weighted universe across all attributes with (say) weights of 0.7 and 0.3 for cardiologist and GP, respectively, and weights of 0.2 and 0.8 for under 35 years and 35 years or older, respectively. Given the five two-level background descriptors, described above, we have a maximum of 32 distinct segments.

Later on, we shall describe how the 'optimal' price for each product is determined, given stated prices for all other brands. The optimal price will be defined by the value that maximizes contribution to overhead and profit, defined by the expression:

Industry sales units • (price - variable cost/unit of brand p ) • (market share of brand p). (In applying the computer-based PRIDEM model, industry sales are usually set, for convenience, at 1.0.)

3.3. Market share model

Associated with each brand p is an estimated market share

f(p)(k; j, w)

where k is a vector (of length R) of prices, j is a vector (of length T) of levels for the non-price attributes, and w is S vectors (of respective lengths l1 , l2 ,...., lS) denoting the universe of decision makers (i.e., the physicians).

The function f(p) is obtained by first fitting a main effects model to the raw response data (i.e., the likelihood of prescribing the p-th brand in question) where the predictors are the S segment attributes, the T non-price attributes, and the R price attributes, all expressed as dummy variables. Selected two-way interactions are then added to the model in a sequential, stagewise manner (Green and DeSarbo, 1979). As noted above, interactions can be either within segment, non-price, or price attributes, or between segment, non-price, or price attributes.

The fitting of main effects and interactions yields a set of regression-based functions h(p), p = 1, 2 ,..., P, one for each product, as a preliminary step toward obtaining f(p). We first discuss how each h(p) is obtained and then how it is adjusted to find f(p). The model is described, in part, by its L interactions. As noted earlier, interaction l* can be of several differing types:

() with .

We have the combinations as shown in Table 1.

Attribute levels with associated interaction are denoted by (). For example, if q11 = 2, q12 = 3, u11 = 3, and w12 = 4, then the first interaction is between the third non-price attribute and the fourth price attribute.

Describing the formal regression model for estimating each individual product's h(p) is a bit messy because of the large variety of possible interaction terms. We define h(p) as



A(p) denotes the intercept term for product p's function,

denotes the main effect partworth for level is of segment attribute s,

denotes the main effect partworth for level jt of non-price attribute t.

denotes the main effect partworth for level kr of price attribute r, and

(i, j, k; , , , ) is an entry in the matrix associated* with interaction l*. The specific entry depends on i, j, k, , , and

3.4. Base-case calibration

To calibrate each individual brand model, we adjust each h(p) obtained from the individual product regressions to a base-case profile. This is accomplished by finding h(p) for this profile and then multiplying all the parameters (A, B, C, D, E) by b(p)/h(p) where b(p) is the given market share for the base-case profile.

Finally, we obtain the market share function f(p) from h(p) by normalizing the individual h(p) values by means of the function


where (x)+ = max(x, 0), wi = and h has been previously adjusted to base-case market shares, as described above. Note that if h(p) (i, j, k) = 0 for all p, then f(p) (k, j, w) = 1/P.

3.5. Additional remarks

As noted earlier, we fit each h(p) regressior function as a simple linear probability model in which predicted values need not obey a 0-1 range constraint; simple OLS regression is employed. Similarly, f(p) is obtained by a normalizing procedure which simply insures that all of the individual h(p) predicted values are non-negative. (As described earlier, other procedures, including multinomial logit, could be used.)

It should also be pointed out that the sequential fitting of two-way interactions requires that attention be paid to the significance testing of additional terms. This is implemented by procedures described in Green and DcSarbo (1979). In addition, each individual h(p) model is cross-validated at each stage in the interaction fitting procedure. Cross-validated predictions are employed as the principal guide to the selection of appropriate interaction terms, once the main effects have been fitted.

4. Price interpolation and optimization

There are two remaining aspects of the model that are not explained fully by (1) for h(p). (Since the discussion below applies to all p, we now omit the superscript.) We first note from the preceding discussion that market shares can only be predicted at the price levels associated with the price attributes. It is desirable to be able to interpolate, i.e., to predict market shares at prices , r = 1,..., R, that are not limited to the original . Second, we have not discussed how to find the optimal prices , r = 1,..., R.

4.1. Interpolation procedure

The solutions to both of these problems de pend upon the method of interpolation between successive price levels and . To this end, we assume that the weightings over seg ments and levels for non-price attributes are fixed, in any given run of the model. The function, h, can then be written as h(,..... ) where ,..... denotes prices for the R price at tributes. Since we fit an additive model with interactions, we can write.


where A includes the intercept, and the main effects for segments and nonprice attributes and interactions that do not involve price attributes: g, includes the main effect for price attribute r and all interactions involving the r-th price attribute with a segment attribute or a non-price attribute: g refers to the interaction between the r-th and s-th price attributes (where g?? = 0 if this interaction does not appear in the model).

The function s is R-dimensional with known values on a lattice of points , r = 1.....R, j = We could fit a spline (Greville. 1969: Rice, 1969) to h, treating the as the knots: however, we would not be using all of the known information. Since g and grs are known at , and (, ) we can fit one and two-dimensional splines respectively to these functions, thus determining h. The Appendix describes how this is done.

4.2. Finding the optimal value for price

From discussion in the previous sections (and the Appendix), we only need to consider between two knots. Hence,


where includes the assumed specified values, for the prices of the remaining p - 1 products. Hence, the market share for product p is


and the objective function, , can be written as:


It is straightforward to solve (6) when Z1 () = 0, which is an equation of order 2K, and compare these results to the values at the knots. In particular, if K = 1, then



We find the two points such that Z1() = 0 for for j = 0, 1..... n - 1. Finally, we compare Z at these two points, provided that the points are in the appropriate (, ) to determine .

5. A real-world application

The PRIDEM model and decision support system have been implemented on both the main frame (Vax 8700) and the personal computer. A number of industrial applications have been made of PRIDEM over the past three years. We illustrate PRIDEM's application with an actual industry example involving two pharmaceutical companies' pricing strategies in the marketing of a diet supplement for use by hospital patients who have trouble swallowing traditional foodstuffs. (All data have been disguised to respect sponsor confidentiality.)

5.1. Study background

For several years, only one pharmaceutical firm, hereafter called Alpha, had been marketing a special diet supplement for hospital patients with esophagus ailments. The product was designed for drinking (through a straw); it contained a balanced set of nutrients. More recently, a second firm, hereafter called Beta, had developed its own diet supplement. Several of its product properties differed from those of Alpha as well as its marketing and pricing plans.

Prior to Beta's entry, Alpha's ongoing price for its diet supplement was $41 per day per patient. Beta believed that Alpha's short run monopoly could be upset by penetration pricing; accordingly. Beta introduced its product at only $38 per individual per day. The results were dramatic; in two years. Beta had penetrated the market to such an extent that the two firms' shares were 28% and 72%, respectively, for Alpha and Beta. At this point, Beta wondered whether its price was 'right' (in the sense of optimizing its contribution to overhead and profit) and what the implications might be if Alpha were to change its still-current price of $41.

5.2 Designing the conjoint surrey

A conjoint study was designed to obtain data for use in the PRIDEM model. First, Beta personnel discussed possible non-price attributes that could affect market shares independently (or possibly interactively with price). Four such attributes were identified:

1. Packaging for Alpha: 4-ounce can (current) versus 6-ounce can (prospective); Beta's dosage was already at 6 ounces per can.

2. Extended contract price guarantee for Alpha: NO (current) versus YES (prospective); Beta had no price guarantee.

3. Concentration of amino acids for Beta: low concentration (current) versus high concentration (prospective); Alpha's concentration was already slightly lower than Beta's current concentration.

4. Educational aids for Beta: NO (current) versus YES (prospective); Alpha already had educational aids.

In addition to the non-price attributes, Beta's management considered several possibilities for identifying market segments. Management settled on two primary segmentation bases:

1.Type of respondent (i.e., as an influence on which brand is purchased)

  1. nurses.
  2. doctors,
  3. hospital pharmacists.

2. Size of hospital

  1. Large (over 500 beds).
  2. small (fewer than 500 beds).

Finally, Beta management estimated that variable costs for producing and distributing the diet supplement were about equal between the two firms; they estimated these costs at $19 per individual per day.

A sample of 390 respondents was selected, according to the two stratifying criteria (profession and hospital size). All interviews were conducted by personal administration, following pre-arranged appointments. Respondents received honoraria for their participation.

The conjoint portion of the interview was based on a master orthogonal experimental design of 50 profile cards. Each profile card contained information on brand names, non-price attribute levels under each brand name, and prices per patient day. The prices were drawn from the following sets:

  1. Alpha - $43, $41 (current), $34, $28. $21.
  2. Beta - $41, $38 (current), $34, $28, $21.

Each respondent first received a 'base case' profile card, followed by five cards (balanced with respect to prices) from the overall orthogonal design. For each card, the respondent was asked to indicate what his/her recommendation would be to purchasing agents responsible for choosing the diet supplement supplier. Each respondent was asked to split 100 points (constant sum scale) between the two potential suppliers, reflecting their likelihood of recommending each.

Other, background information, including the hospital's current use of diet supplements, respondent's role in the contract decision process, years of experience, etc., were also collected for cross-tabulation with the conjoint results.

6. Running the PRIDEM program

Figure 2 shows a portion of the PRIDEM computer run for the problem described above. Illustratively, we input the base-case prices (as a control) and note, of course, the same market shares as originally read in (e.g., Alpha's share is 0.28). We also observe that the contribution to overhead and profit per patient day is $6.16 and $13.68 for Alpha and Beta, respectively.

6.1. Overall market analysis

We next consider alternative pricing strategies, conditioned on the non-price attributes remaining at their original (current) levels. Suppose we wish to find Alphas optimal price at base-case levels. We enter instructions accordingly and find from Figure 2 that its optimal price is $36.19, a decrease from its current level of $41. If Alpha were to reduce its price, with no retaliation from Beta, its share would increase ten percentage-points (from a share of 0.28 to 0.38). Overhead/profit contribution would increase from $6.16 to $6.53.

Next, we repeat the exercise for Beta, conditional on no change in Alpha price from its status quo of $41. In this case Betas optimum entails an increase in its price to $41 (which then happens to be at parity with Alpha). Beta's share would decline from 0.72 to 0.65 but its contribution would increase from $13.68 to $14.26.2

Next, we consider a unilateral strategic change by Beta - one that both improves its non-price attribute levels (from their current levels to their prospective levels) and decreases its price from the original $38 level to $34. Given no retaliation from Alpha, the net effect is to increase Beta's share to 0.868 and its contribution to $13.03.

What should Alpha do if Beta drops to $34 and improves its non-price attributes? Assuming that Alpha's only short-run retaliation is price, the PRIDEM model finds that it should lower price from its starting level of $41 to $34 (at parity with Beta's new price).

Next, we consider a case in which Alpha stays at $41 but Beta really drives down its price (to $28). Moreover, both firms improve their respective non-price attributes to level 2 (prospective levels). The net effect of these actions is that Beta's share markedly increases to 0.933 but its contribution drops substantially (to $8.39).

6.2. Selected segment analysis

At this point we elect to stay with the same non-price parameters as described immediately above. But now we focus on a specific market segmenting variable-type of respondent: nurses, doctors, and pharmacists. PRIDEM shows that the effects on Beta's share differ by segment: 0.892 (nurses), 0.921 (doctors), and 0.982 (pharmacists). Their weighted average is 0.933. as noted above for the total market analysis.

6.3. Weighted segment analysis

To round out the discussion, we also consider a weighted segment analysis for both type of respondent and hospital size. Illustratively, we assign weights of 0.5, 0.4, and 0.1 to nurses, doctors, and pharmacists, respectively. We assign weights of 0.8 and 0.2 to large and small hospitals, respectively.

The net result of this parameter setting is a Beta share of 0.909 and an associated contribution of $8.18. These outputs are each lower than their total market counterparts.3

6.4. Dynamic changes

Up to this point, our PRIDEM illustration did not explore sequential competitive retaliation. It is, however, a simple matter to use the program in such a way that in Round 1 Alpha initiates action; in Round 2 Beta answers in some fashion, and so on.

By way of illustration, a sequence of actions was implemented, based on starting conditions of $41 (Alpha) and $38 (Beta) with all non-price attributes at their current levels. We assume that Alpha starts out as the price "leader," Beta follows suit, and so on (and each tries to optimize its contribution, conditional on the other's prices). For two such rounds, the results are as- can be seen in Table 2.

At the end of two rounds - initiation and response - the prices are $36.19 and 39.83. with shares (contributions) of 0.43 ($7.38) and 0.57 ($11.90) for Alpha and Beta, respectively. Of course, given the ability of Alpha and Beta to collude (if no external competitor were present and if total demand were completely inelastic), they could drive up the prices as much as they liked. (Hence, we do not consider further price changing rounds lor this example.)

The idea of an external competitor can he incorporated into the PRIDEM model by including a ( P + 1 )-st product with fixed prices and non-price attribute levels, and a starting share. Then, if Alpha and Beta tried to drive up their prices the external competitor would garner an increasing share of the market.

7. What have we learned?

How did the study's sponsor react to the PRIDEM model? As we have frequently found in applied studies using the model, the sponsor explored the possibilities for non-price attribute changes. In this example, Beta management added a price guarantee and educational aids. These non-price changes were accompanied by a Beta price increase to $41 (at parity with Alpha). As of six months after Beta's changes, Alpha had not retaliated with either non-price or price changes. While we are not privy to the financial consequences of Beta's strategy, to the best of our knowledge market share remained relatively stable over the six months' time period in question.

To date, the PRIDEM model has been used on several empirical applications, most frequently drawn from the pharmaceutical industry. The predictions made from the model have been, cross-checked, where possible, with time-series analyses of historical price changes. As is well known, analyses of such 'natural experiments' are fraught with difficulty. However, in the cases analyzed, the results have been roughly concordant with those obtained-from the model.

The main advantages of the PRIDEM model over that proposed by Mahajan, Green, and Goldberg (1982) are twofold. First, market segment responses can be estimated by means of main effects parameters and interactions with price and non-price attribute levels. Second, the present model solves for optimal prices, conditioned on fixed levels for price and non-price attributes of competitive products (using variable cost data estimated by the sponsoring firm's financial department). Moreover, use of the model, as a decision support system, is straightforwardly implemented by non-technical personnel on either a main-frame of personal computer.

There are several limitations to the model, as currently formulated and operationalized. First, the model deals with aggregated responses, where segment differences are measured by within- and between-set interactions. As Moore (1980) has illustrated, researcher-selected segmenting variables may not adequately capture full individual variation in attribute-level part worths. Second, the model does not make allowance for lack of respondent knowledge about actual prices; in some cases the model could overstate price sensitivity, since full comparative pricing information is shown to the respondents. Third, while the model can handle intra-product line pricing (in terms of within-firm competition), it does not consider joint production/distribution costs.

7.1. Action / reaction sequence

As briefly described earlier, PRIDEM enables the user to examine action/reaction sequences, albeit in a rather simple way that does not consider changes in buyer preferences or other kinds of new information that might be obtained between successive rounds of price changes.

Theoretical work by Hauser and Shugan (1983), Kumar and Sudharshan (1988) and Choi, DeSarbo, and Harker (1990) represent a very interesting topic to pursue in tandem with the measurement aspects of PRIDEM.

To date, management's reaction to PRIDEM's potential for formulating 'dynamic' (action/reaction) strategies has been less than enthusiastic. In our experience managers are much more concerned with the interplay of non-price and pricing strategies, with priority given to the former. Bearing in mind that competitive retaliation to non-price actions is typically more difficult and less immediate, this emphasis is understandable.

When managers do engage in action/reaction gaming, their interest usually does not extend to questions of long term equilibria but, rather, is focused on only two to three moves ahead. Again, we do not find these views naive and 'myopic'. Managers typically lack information regarding competitors' costs, motivations and intentions; moveover, they also face questionable assumptions regarding stability in buyers' perceptions and brand preferences over the time period under study.

7.2. Conclusions

These are important caveats and represent opportunities for further research. 4 Hence, we consider the model and its associated decision support system as an interim effort that can (and should) be expanded, consistent with making sure that future versions can be operationalizcd in terms of accessible buyer preferences and cost data. If we have learned anything from the development of PRIDEM, it is the important fact that useful models must pay due attention to the kinds of measurements and data inputs one hopes to be able to obtain from the environment (e.g., marketplace).

What has made PRIDEM work is the simple fact that conjoint data can be obtained in reasonably realistic ways from prospective buyers. Without this measurement linkage (and at the back end, a user-friendly computer system), PRIDEM could have easily joined the ranks of a large array of technically attractive models with few (or no) users.


In this section we describe, in further detail, the spline fitting procedure that enabled us to interpolate between the discrete price points utilized in the experimental design.

A.1. Fitting onc-dimensioual splines

Let g be a function of one variable. Assume that we know the value of g at (i.e., at n + 1 knots). We want to interpolate to find g(x) smoothly; . We approximate g(x) by a p-dimensional polynomial in each interval , i = 1.....n. Note that the meaning of the variables here (e.g., p below) is different from that used in the main text. That is,


Let g(k) denote the k-th derivative of x. We know g() and g() for smoothness we assume that for k = 1,.... p - 1. This gives us p + 1 linear equations in p + 1 unknowns and hence ai0.....aip are determined. Specifically, let r1 = g(), r2 = g() and tk = , k = 1,..., p - 1. Let ai = ai0.....aip and


from which

All we need to specify exogenously is g(t) ,...., g(p-t).

Linear interpolation is a special case of the above. Solving for (at0, a??) yields


A.2. Fitting two-dimensional splines

Let g be a function of two variables. Assume that we know the value of g at the lattice of points (, ), i = 1, j = 1,...,n. We want to interpolate to find g( x, y ) smoothly for all x and y, and . We approximate g( x, y ) by a polynomial in each rectangle , . That is,

for and .

In a manner similar to the one-dimensional case, smoothness conditions and t00 = g(, ), t01 = g(, ), t10 = g(, ),and t11 = g(, ). In particular, let p = 1. Then g( x, y ) = . We then have four linear equations in four unknowns

t00 = ,

t01 = ,

t10 = ,


t11 = .

These four equations have the solution:

aij11 = ,

aij10 = ,

aij01 = ,


aij00 = .

2 To conserve on space, the analyses to follow are not shown in Figure 2.

3 By applying weights of 1 and 0, one can find results for each of the six possible segment combinations of respondent profession by hospital size.

Instructions For Responding To Materials In Envelope

Thanks very much for your continued participation in our survey. The envelope (Envelope B) contains eight cards. Please look at these cards now. Each card describes a possible business scenario. Please start with the top card, labeled in the upper, right-hand corner as C-141. As you'll note, the first column of this card lists eleven brand/LINE names of plastic artificial teeth (the other seven cards list the same eleven brand/LINE names).

Column 2 shows the approximate current price in dollars (not including any shipping cost), of an anterior 1 by 6 card. (As you go through all eight cards, you'll note that these prices may change from card to card.)

Column 3 shows three kinds of distribution availability: local dealer, mail-order dealer (a dealer that ships teeth from a non-local location), and direct from the manufacturer. A given manufacturer may have some combination of distribution availability, e.g._yes, yes, no. Considering brand/LINE differences, price differences, and distribution availability differences, we'd like you to allocate 100 points across the eleven brands

In such a way as to reflect the share of your total plastic teeth business volume (in units) that you would place with each of these brand/LINES over the next three months, given the information shown on the card.

You can assign ZERO points to one or more suppliers if you feel that you would place no orders with them during the next three months. However, please make sure that the TOTAL number of assigned points add to 100.

As you have finished your point allocation for the first card, please read off to me your point allocation to each supplier (including ZERO points if that's applicable).
(Interviewer: check that total is 100.)

Now let's proceed to the next card. Each card will be different from the rest in one or more respects — price or type of distribution availability. For each of the scenarios, please indicate your point allocation under each set of conditions.

Briefing Supervisor: _______________________________


This is Phone Mail Phone WATS study. All recruiting and interviewing is to be conducted during local business hours using the sample provided.

All respondents will be recruited via phone then mailed a packet via US Priority mail, then called again on the phone approximately 4-5 days after the mailing. At the time of the second call the respondents will be instructed on how to complete the forms in Envelope B and to return the contents of Envelope A and Envelope B back to GRC.


In order to qualify for this study, respondents must meet the following requirements:

  • Laboratory must fabricate dentures using plastic artificial teeth (Q.A)
  • Respondent must be responsible for selecting the plastic artificial teeth the laboratory uses (Q.B1)
  • Respondent must be willing to participate (accept receipt of the packet) (Q.C)
  • Respondent must have completed contents of Envelope A and Completed 2nd Call.



Ask to speak to the person recorded on the sample OR the person responsible for selecting the teeth the laboratory will use.

When speaking to the receptionist read the introduction verbatim. If the receptionist indicates that the selected respondent is not available, leave your 800 number, asking him to call back at his earliest convenience, or you may interview another qualified person in the same office if the first respondent is not available. You may not interview two respondents from the same office.

If the receptionist indicates that this dental laboratory will not participate, terminate, circle the next available number in the termination box.

When speaking to the selected respondent read the introduction verbatim.

Q.A:If "yes" ask Q.Bl. If "no" terminate. This location does not qualify for this study.

Q.B1:If "yes" continue. If "no" ask to speak to the person responsible for selecting the teeth the laboratory uses, if he is unavailable, leave the 800 number, asking him to call back at his earliest convenience, otherwise terminate.

Q.B2:Record the number of laboratory technicians employed at this facility.

Q.C:Read verbatim. Explain to the respondent that they will be receiving a packet via US Priority mail. The packet contains two envelopes. The envelope labeled "A" must be completed as soon as they receive it. They are to be instructed not to do anything with the envelope labeled "B" until they receive a call from you which will occur approximately 4-5 days after they have received the package. Inform the respondent that they will receive $20.00 if they complete the contents of Envelope A, receive a 2nd call and complete the contents of Envelope B, and return the contents of both A and B in the Business Reply Envelope provided.

If the respondents refuses, terminate, circle next available number in the termination box. If the respondents agrees schedule a callback appointment approximately 4-5 days from when the package is to be mailed. Record date and time of call in the space provided.

Record all respondent information on the front page of the screener. Important: Record the total number of attempts needed to obtain this completed recruit in the space indicated on the front page of the screener.


All packets are to be mailed out the same day the respondents are recruited.

You are to record the date of when the packet was mailed on the front page of the Screener.

You are to type up one label to adhere to the mailing envelope.

Each respondent will be receiving 4 items:
       Cover Letter
       Envelope A--Common To All Respondents
       Envelope B--Customize by Respondents --Check with Supervisor
       Business Reply Envelope--Customize by Respondent--Check with Supervisor


At the scheduled time each respondent will receive a 2ndcall. The purpose of this second call is to verify receipt of the package and to provide the respondent with instructions on how to complete the contents of Envelope B.

There is no questionnaire to be administered-by you in this phase of the study, the only instrument that you will be using is the "Instruction For Responding To Materials In Envelope B" sheet. You are to read the sheet verbatim. Be sure you are familiar with the forms before you get on the telephone with the respondents.

Note: On the second paragraph from the bottom of the instruction sheet it refers to "Read off to me...." You are not recording anything, you are simply making sure that the respondent has correctly allocated 100 points across all supplier on each page.

After the respondent understands the process of filling out the forms, instruct them to return both the contents of Envelope A and B, the respondent should be told not to include Envelope A and Envelope B but only their contents, that is the self administered questionnaire and the 8 cards, in the provided Business Reply Envelope.

Remind the respondent that they will receive their $ 20.00 check only after GRC receives their completed packet.

Record the total number of attempts needed to obtain this completed 2nd call in the space indicated on the top of the 2nd page of the screener. Be sure to circle Recruited/2nd Call Completed on the front page of the screener.
