The Large Area Display Cost Model covers large-area (9”+) displays for major applications: the LCD TV, monitor, and notebook PC applications. This model includes Excel data tables and PowerPoint. The cost model helps to understand the panel cost structure, forecast, and the profitability of each mainstream panels. Users can generate forecasts based on their data and assumptions. At the same time, standard selections are already prepared in this model, showing many typical panels. The reader can also refer to it as a report on the cost structure of the mainstream panels. The typical selection sheet is easy to work with, because users can change starting conditions affecting panel cost like equipment depreciation year and click on the “Process Start” button on the sheet. Model users also can change the parameters like component costs, panel prices, panel yield, and fab utilization to reflect their real panel condition.
