Economic efficiency calculation

Stable & long-lasting

The calculation example shows the costs of new procurement after 5 years in €. A first purchase of 500 plates each at a price of 5€ per plate is assumed. The breakage rate for plastic is 2 % (= 10 plates) and for porcelain is 33 % (= 165 plates).
