AMP Application Rate Advantage

The concept of product development is pretty simple. How do we either improve on an existing product or create something superior that is a replacement product?

Add to that the consideration for managing costs associated with switching to a new product as well as ensuring apple to apple cost comparisons, and the introduction of new products can feel more burdensome than exciting.
