Abstract

In this article, we present a model to evaluate both marketable quality and profitability consid-ering service providers and consumers relation. We use the real values of some leading Japa-nese manufacturing corporations as virtual data of service providers to our proposed model to analyze its accuracy. By analysis, we found that the theoretical and real standard values of the marketable quality indicator for the rate of operation at the break-even point were both 0.6 (that is 60%). This shows that the proposed model has a good approximation. From the fair relation of network providers and consumers, we provided the network pricing guidelines for the maximum profitability while enhancing the marketable quality.
