Abstract

The authors have developed an easy-to-use approach, derived from financial portfolio theory, for determining which product(s) to eliminate. This approach takes into account the effect the product deletion will have on the overall rate of return and the overall risk of the product portfolio.

Keywords: product deletion, portfolio theory, rate of return, product retention index
