  1. 1. RATE REORGANIZATION RESEARCHIn the current presentation of the rates in both the DMM and the ratefold, the ratetables are organized by class. Given that the proposed information architecture for thenew DMM is shape based, the team was asked to explore the possible reorganization ofrates by shape. In the fall, this began with a high level visualization (in tree diagrams)of the structure for all the rates (excluding periodicals) using Retail and Discount thenshape as the principle organizational categories. Second, prototypes of rate tables werecreated incorporating icons and other visual elements.
  2. 2. Structure of “R” Sections in Current DMMWe began with an analysis of the presentationof the rate tables in the current DMM. Thisanalysis included a comparison between the NOTICE 123, RATEFOLD RATES AND FEESRatefold: Notice 123 and the R section: Ratesand Fees. • First-Class Mail • Parcel Post - Intra-BMC/ASF • R000 Stamps and Stationery • Express Mail • Parcel Post - Intra-BMC/ASF • R100 First-Class MailOur findings included: • Periodicals • Parcel Post - Parcel-Select • R200 PeriodicalsThe information in the Ratefold footnotes were Structure • Standard Mail • Media Mail • R500 Express Maildisplayed differently in the R section, some- • Fees • Library Mail • R600 Standard Mailtimes as rule, sometimes as another table. • Priority Mail • Bound Printed Matter • R700 Package Services • R900 ServicesWhile the organization of rates supported com-parisons within a class, comparing rates acrossclasses was not supported. • Separate document from DMM • A section in DMM Form • Compact tables with footnotes • Disaggregated tables with footnotes & rulesFinally, we determined that is was possible to • Organized by class • Organized by classreflow this information into the new TOC. Thismeans that the rate tables and rules can bedisaggregated by method, shape as well as class.As a result of this reorganization of the tables,comparisons of rates across classes, within a By intermediate/expert mailers: • Making comparison across rates in order to make decisions, By intermediate/expert mailers:shape, can now be supported. • Deeper understanding of the rate calculation Use in the initial stage of mailing • More detailed explanation of rate application • Quick reference • Entry point for the DMM helping mailers understand the • For legal reference & citation options available • Disaggregated small tables by method, shapes, and topics • One compact table per class • “Summary table” that corresponds to the table in the Ratefold • Different methods & shapes combined under class Table • Little redundancy • Some tables that are treated as footnotes in Ratefold • Little redundancy • Hard to understand • Hard to understand • Some rules are tables in Ratefold Text • 1 ~ 7 footnotes per table (average of 3) • Some rules are footnotes in Ratefold
  3. 3. “Introduction” Section in New DMM: Proposed StructureInstead of one section in the DMM containingthe rules and rate tables, the new TOC creates INTRODUCTION (Option 1) 100 RETAIL MAILING SERVICE 200-400 DISCOUNT MAILING SERVICEmultiple places for this information, providingdifferent ways to access the information. RATE & FEES REFERENCE RETAIL LETTERS, CARDS, FLATS, & CARDS DISCOUNT LETTERS & CARDSThe beginning of the DMM will have the Letters & Cards 130 Standards for First-Class Mail 230 Standards for First-Class Mailsummary rate tables that, like the current First-class Mail Rates and Eligibility Rates and Eligibilityratefold, will support quick access to the rates First-class Mail Rates & Fees First-class Mail Rates & Feesbut, unlike the current ratefold, can also (Retail & Discount)support comparison of rates across classes. FlatsTwo options are being proposed for theorganization of this section: First-class Mail DISCOUNT FLATSOption 1 uses shape as the principle organizing (Retail & Discount) 330 Standards for First-Class Mailstructure.

  8. 8. “Class Pathway” sections in New DMM: Analysis of footnotes & rules — ExamplesIn order to integrate the rate tables in to thenew architecture, we analyzed the presentation RATEFOLD RATES AND FEESof this material in the R section of the DMMand the ratefold. Based on this analysis weconcluded that the same content was nottreated consistently, i.e. a footnote in theratefold might be a rule in the R section.Also, the tables and rules would have to bereorganized to match the new TOC.A color was applied to each footnote and rulein the Ratefold and R section (Rates and Fees)for all classes. Each color corresponds with acategory:Information that should be a footnote becauseit references an individual row, column or cell.Rules that define the class or explain how therates are calculated.Footnotes that should be used to modify orcreate a new table.Supplemental information that explains optionsavailable to the mailer.
