This book presents a thorough explanation of Supplier Price Analysis (SPA), a technique which can be used for analyzing a supplier's price quotation by developing a basic pricing model by using information readily available from that supplier's annual reports, trade associations, public data bases, standard ratio analysis, and product specifications. Two complex buying decisions are analyzed in detail to demonstrate the application of SPA methodology to actual buying situations.
