Estimating the Trend of the Italian Earthmoving Machinery Market

COMAMOTER is the group of the Italian earthmoving machinery manufacturers within UNACOMA, the Italian association of tractors and agricultural machinery manufacturers, members of Confindustria the Italian Federetion of the Industry.
COMAMOTER carries out a service of information, assistance for its members and representation of the sector which applies to all fields, on a national and international level and, lastly, besides periodically gauging the trend of the Italian market in the sector, participates in the intercontinental statistical programme within the framework of CECE/AEM and publishes estimates on production, imports and exports of earthmoving machinery, as well as surveys and statistics on the trend of the European market in the sector.
In order to estimate the trend of the Italian market of earthmoving machinery, COMAMOTER organizes trimestral gathering of statistical data from all most important manufacturers. This data is analysed and processed for obtaining tabular statistics that are then broadcasted to all manufacturers. A software system was designed and implemented for managing these statistics. The system has two subsystems: "Vendite" and "Sommatoria" . "Vendite" is customized for each earthmoving machinery manufacturer and enables it to gather, manage, and archive data of the its sales. A final report could be delivered for sales of each trimester. This report is an input for the "Sommatoria" subsystem that is deployed in COMAMOTER's headquarters. Trimestral meetings are organised for gathering the sales reports of all manufacturers and processing them with "Sommatoria" in global statistic estimates. The final results are broadcasted to all manufacturers in order to enable them to collocate the own sales among the comprehensive sales of the market.
