"interesting break up... i would have thought that the cost conscious sector was bigger and the quality at any price people were less well represented. I'm probably in that middle category myself... but that's more because of budgetary realities. :)"

Hailey, majority looks for better quality for a least price due to budgetary constrains. Value of the money- is the new slogan

@Hospice, you make an important dinstinction between influence and authority here. Of course, if the engineers and designers are smart, they listen to the customers....but they have authority in what goes on.

"I would give a very generic statement and say it's the human interactions that drive the design chain :-) It's not really a particular job title or particular position that really has a stronger influence than the other.  

Alex, am not getting about what you meant by generic statement about human interactions

 "What is the breakup like? How many customers are Cost Conscious today(% wise)?  How many want Quality at any price?"

Tech4people, the rough estimation is 25% of customers are looking for quality at any price, 30% for quality at a better price and 40% are very cost conscious.

"My Personal Experiences have been that Consumers have become more Cost conscious today but then I could be wrong. WHat does your extensive Experience here tell You?"

tech4people, I had handled both set of customers. Now I agree cost comes major in terms of negotiation. But there are other set of customers, who had to meet specific requirements, rather than the cost factor.

My Personal Experiences have been that Consumers have become more Cost conscious today but then I could be wrong.

WHat does your extensive Experience here tell You?
