Percentage of parts that are common across major product lines

This measure calculates the percentage of common components across significant products, providing companies with critical information to execute the "perform discovery research" process accurately. Within this function, companies gather information to triangulate the technologies that support the development and production of their major product lines. This measure is part of a set of Supplemental Information measures that help companies evaluate additional variables not covered elsewhere for the "perform discovery function" process.
