Abstract

A program is disclosed that enables the comparison and analysis of services' charging to derive a competitive 'market' charge/price for the service or the service components that comprise that service. The program is unique in that it removes alot of the subjective estimation around what is a competitive market charge/price and produces an objective view of the competitive market charge/price.
