Cannibalization has many definitions, but one of the simplest is to define it as taking serviceable parts from a thing that does not work to use them on another thing that does not work to make one thing that does work. The term probably came into popular use during WW2 when clever, mechanically adept GI's used their skills to keep equipment damaged in battle running. The somewhat grisly origin of the term probably comes from the fact that when a cannibal eats another human being, he may be said to be using serviceable parts from one person to keep another person (himself) running. The process only works on things that have interchangeable parts.

For a simple example, let's say you have two cars of the same model and year, but neither runs, but each for a different reason. One car may have a bad alternator and a good starter, while the other car has a bad starter but a good alternator. By taking the good part from either car and replacing the bad part in the other car, you can get one of the two cars running. You have "cannibalized" one car to make the other one work. You can extend this concept further by, say, taking the good tires from the cannibalized car and replacing the worn tires on the car that now starts. The process can be repeated almost indefinitely until you have run out of good parts to replace bad ones.

Another meaning is the process of eating one's own kind.

For other excellent examples and definitions of cannibalization, see related links.

The decision was taken due to high dependency MUL(Maruti India Limited) on ZEN in terms of sales and revenue.

Hence the decision taken by MUL was justifiable. It lead to sale of all product of the company, 800n, Alto, in equal proportion. From Karam Bir Singh 9501105719


Do dingoes sometimes eat other dingoes?

It depends purely upon the situation. Most species of animals will cannibalize one of its own kind, if the situation calls for it. However, it is unusual, and not commonplace.Dingoes will generally not cannibalize each other, unless the lack of food is so severe that cannibalism is their only option for survival. This is not the case 99% of the time, though, so dingoes usually live in relative harmony.However, if a pack strays onto the territory of another dingo pack, it is not uncommon for either pack to attempt to fight and kill members of the other. On the flip side, any dingoes killed will most likely not be eaten.Cannibalization of dingo pups has been observed, although this is usually a male eliminating offspring of a competitor.

Is it bad to lose weight fast?

It can be. Ideally, you should only lose 1 to 2 pounds per week, if you are dieting to lose weight. Anything significantly greater can be dangerous. If you intentionally lose weight very quickly by taking in very small numbers of calories, it is often associated with an imbalance in the nutrients you are taking in, as well as the "cannibalization" of some of your body's muscle when it goes into a starvation mode. Because your heart is a muscle, it can actually do damage to this and other organ systems, depending on how long your "diet" lasts. If it is not intentional, and you lose weight very quickly for no obvious reason, it could be a sign that there is something wrong in your body that needs immediate medical attention. Please see a doctor as soon as possible. The best way to lose weight is to cut out the high calorie foods and snacks and replace them with fresh vegetables and lean meats and increase your activity. It can be slow and frustrating, but it will keep you healthier. Losing weight is only one of the ways you can make your quality of life better - another is paying attention to your nutrition and exercise. It's not as important what you weigh as how fit you are.

What market coverage strategy are dining room suits usually marketed under?

One of the most important decisions that a company makes is whatmarket coverage strategy to use for a brand. In analyzing any one product, the first thing to consider is the market. For example, the market for Duracell is the battery market. But this market is too broad to segment effectively (since it includes industrial batteries), so it makes sense to narrow the market to what can be called a focus market, in this case the consumer battery market. In a sense, the focus market rules out products that are not substitutes. For example, a marketing analysis for Gatorade (which has about a 90% market share) should not exclude water since that is a substitute for a sports drink and a possible source of new sales. Otherwise the analysis would be stuck with a market definition of sports drinks and thus virtually no practical way of increasing sales.(Note that this is exactly what Gatorade has done with their "lighter" brand extensions. By using thirst-quenching drinks as the market, they have succeeded in developing products that are as much substitutes for water as sports drinks, thus helping to prevent cannibalization.)For Duracell, the marketing issue is what market coverage strategy should they use in the consumer battery market. To answer this question a company can construct a "segmentation circle" that represents the possible ways that a market can be segmented such that each possible segment is or can be a product that meets separate needs and wants. (Note: if not separate, cannibalization can and probably will occur.)Consumer segmentation variables include demographics (e.g., , age, gender and family life cycle), psycho-graphics (e.g., self concept and lifestyle), usage rate (e.g., heavy and light users) and benefits sought. In this case benefits sought may be batteries for normal vs. high-drain devices.A company has three basic choices for market coverage strategy:Undifferentiated---ignore segmentation variables and go after the whole market with one brand.Differentiated---operate in all or several segments of the market and design separate brands for each.Concentrated---operate in one or only a few segments of the larger market following a niche strategy with one brand.For years Duracell and its competitors in the consumer battery market followed undifferentiated market coverage strategies. There was only the Duracell brand name and the company wanted to sell those batteries to everyone in the market. However, Duracell switched to a differentiated market coverage strategy by bringing out a new product line called Duracell Ultra (for high-drain devices). The success of this strategy depends on how well Duracell did their segmentation analysis---the segmentation circle---since that is what defines how different the two markets really are. If they are not different, the new product could cannibalize the existing product or, worse, dilute the meaning of the brand in the minds of consumers.The segmentation variables that are relevant are the ones that represent (or potentially represent) ways of offering different products to a market. That is why income is relevant for, say, sport utility vehicles but not for sports information. There are luxury sport utility vehicles, but there are not---and probably won't be---upscale general sports magazines or Internet sites. Income may be related to who has a computer, but not to creating the Internet or other sports information product itself. The "test" for any segmentation variable, then, is: If you can't say a sub-segment could lead to a branded product in that segment, then it isn't an effective way of segmenting that market.A way of telling what market coverage strategy a company is using is the number of separately-branded products that it offers in any one market. Gap could have regional variation in product assortments (say for different climates), but if there was only one Gap name, the market coverage strategy would be undifferentiated. In reality, there are at least two Gap brand names: Gap and Baby Gap; hence, Gap follows a differentiated market coverage strategy. If there were only Baby Gap, the market coverage strategy being used would be concentrated.BY JAY N VISAVADIYA.Contect no: - 9998967667Thanking you..........


Who invented the hollister clothing?

Hollister Co. opened its first store July 2000[6] at Easton Town Center in Columbus, Ohio.[7][8] As the new brand progressed, Abercrombie & Fitch began to notice a cannibalization effect on the A&F brand (a situation in which a company's new brand eats into the revenue of older brands). As a result, the A&F merchandise began utilizing higher-grade materials and construction (and raising prices as a result) to provide more of a distinction between the two stores. Hollister Co. is very similar to Abercrombie & Fitch, except the prices at Hollister are a bit cheaper than Abercrombie. In May 2002, A&F officials sent a letter to rival brand American Eagle Outfitters accusing the company of using the number "22" on baseball caps and graphic T-shirts to confuse consumers into thinking they were getting Hollister products. Specifically, the lawsuit charged American Eagle with trademark infringement and unfair competition, common law trade dress infringement, and deceptive trade practices. Abercrombie & Fitch asked the court to stop American Eagle from using the number, and award compensatory and punitive damages.[9] By March 24, 2006, Hollister discontinued its rewards program, "Club Cali". The program began with the "Red Card" at the $0 through $500 level. Once a cardholder went beyond the $500 mark, they received the "Gold Card", and beyond the $1,000 mark, the card became platinum. It awarded one point for every dollar spent with points being able to be traded for merchandise such as autographed CDs, surfboards, and the like. Starting summer 2007, A&F spent an amount of $10 million USD to install video walls into HCO stores nationwide.[10] The walls play live feed from Surf City (Huntington Beach, California) to give shoppers the surfer feel. By October 2, 2007, 100 select Hollister stores began to promote Gilly Hicks (the fifth A&F brand, now open) through a variety of "body care" items items including body sprays, deodorant, soaps, lotions, and lip balms called " Sessions". Mike jeffery also was the inventeer of Hollister Bitch's they be sucken hella dicks hahahaha


What is the SWOT analysis of Volkswagen company?
