Well what I feel is that if you can have atleast a combination value of all 3 together by not having 2 100% ratios like 65-75% ratios on all three would be much moe bette.

I think there's room for both types of buyers ,the ones focused on price and the ones focused on time (there are the ones focused in quality as well). So you need to have a flexible supply chain that can handle everyone's special needs.

Ariella, For those of us who want the first mouse and the second mouse, we kill the first one with the trap and poison the bait for the second one!

Okay, I was being smart but there's more than one strategy involved in winning.

@Wale, on that point of view, I just saw this quote:"The early bird may get the worm, but it's the second mouse that gets the cheese." -Steven Wright

@_hm, You are right, the two are important factors that must go alongside each other in production.

@Nemos,

You are right on that, the "fast food" thing is becoming a general rule for almost everything that must sell, not only food but even electronics.

@FlyingScot,

I agree with you on that, quality products need to take timing into consideration too so as to create the first impression early.

@Wale, I agree with you on that but sometimes, it could really take a long time before the quality products start getting known and you wonder if this should really be.

I agree with you but in the long run quality products would still get known, even if not get there first.
