● estimate (forecast) of achievable sales volumes by separately considered regional and product segments, producers, depending on the expected environment (the GDP, industry rise/demand dynamics, prices for products, imports, etc.);

● online analytical processing of the forecast and actual data, multiple-criteria comparison of alternative strategies of market behaviour and search for optimal decisions in terms of profits and costs;

● adaptation of the applied assessment methodology to new conditions, new players and products.
