Sales(Price * Volume)
Price can be interpreted as “experience” when Volume as “quantity”. For instance Starbucks coffee costs 5 bucks when in Sodexo it costs 1.50 bucks. It’s because in Starbucks you get experience with your coffee.
Costs(fixed or Variable)
Aalto buildings are fixed because the school rule doesn’t allow you to reinvent it. It’s a heritage. On the other hand Design Factory is variable because you can reinvent it for any good reason in any possible way. Remember Design factory used to be really a factory before. Now it’s an Aalto innovation center.
