Commodity assessment of marble products
Keywords:expert assessment, cost forecasting, marble products, protocol, evaluation criterion
Background. Marble is widely used to create works of art – sculptures, reliefs, ornaments for architecture, interior and even personal decorations. Marble products have special qualitative characteristics, and also their own distribution of cost indicators, which necessitates the development of methods of commodity assessment of quality and cost forecasting of marble products.
The aim of the work is to describe the most correct algorithm for conducting a commodity assessment of quality and determining the estimated cost of marble products, which is performed on the basis of operations of comparison with similar in quality of raw materials and sizes of products presented on the modern Ukrainian market.
Materials and methods. The first stage of the research is the creation of a base of outputinformation about similar in size marble products for sale. The second is the distribution of products by price. The third is to study the nature of the distribution of cost indicators for marble products and the selection of several groups similar in quality characteristics. The fourth is to build a mathematical model to approximate the observed cost indicators. Fifth – verification of results of application of mathematical model on real examples.
Results. The method of carrying out commodity assessment of quality and determining the estimated cost of marble products is described. There are 2 commodity groups, which differ in the trend of cost growth. It is proved that the samples of the second group have cost indicators, which are substantiated by qualitative characteristics. The base cost for the valuation of marble products has been determined. A mathematical model has been created to calculate the estimated cost of marble products. Indicative cost indicators for marble products of different levels of sociocultural value have been calculated.
Conclusion. The quality of marble products is determined basing on the tradetions of trademarks use and the set of criteria described in the special protocol. The criteria are reflected in the indicator of sociocultural value, which is proportional to the amount of positive information about the product. The estimated cost indicators should be used to determine possible financial loss in case of loss of cultural monument or property disputes; as indicative indicators of possible market cost or indicators in financial transactions – insurance sums, collateral value, rental value and more.
