Market Structure Analysis is a review of various technologies as they relate to a current conceptual model, called the behavioral market structure model. The purpose behind these technologies is to promote a greater understanding and usage of marketing structure in marketing planning. To reach this end, the following issues are discussed: -Multidimensional scaling and the four major types of measuring scales (nominal, ordinal, ratio, and interval); -Two approaches to deriving consumers' utility functions for attributes and levels of attributes; -Stefflre's approach to processes of perception, positioning, and product planning; and -The technique of benefit structure analysis, used to systematically search for needs in broadly defined markets. In this book, the authors have provided an in-depth, thorough analysis of marketing structuring, measurement theory, and measuring scales. The research collected here will prove invaluable to students and scholars of marketing, as well as economists and business firms. Dr. James H.
