Not just a faster delivery or smarter strategy.
PtI curves are sensitive to base cost, cash-flow unit size and rate and a range of other fungible dimensions.Beyond initial setup the sustainability of the demand and the additional costs of scaling need to be taken into account versus cash flow.Different financing models and charge back models together with licensing arrangements may affect cash flow performance that is independent of the technology conditions.
