The essential tool for your DEMPE functional analysis


Conducting a DEMPE functional analysis can be a lengthy, complex process. You need to take into account many different factors to accurately determine the relative contribution of group entities to the Development, Enhancement, Maintenance, Protection and Exploitation of intangibles.

Our quick and easy-to-use DEMPE functional analysis tool makes it so much simpler.

The tool helps you perform the analysis more efficiently, by carrying out real-time calculations and showing you (as a percentage) how much each entity within your organization contributes to the profit-generating value of a given intangible. This means you can simply and accurately determine what proportion of the resulting income each group entity is entitled to.

A clear breakdown of the information you need

Our DEMPE analytics tool consists of several standardized input tables, which you complete with the necessary information. You save time by answering a standard set of questions, while the tool takes care of the process of estimation and calculation. To make the tool even more user-friendly, the tables are pre-populated with sample data from an example scenario so you know exactly how to use the product.

Intuitive controls

Our DEMPE analytics tool is built to be intuitive. Each input table has a set of instructions outlining what you need to do and explaining how to use it.

How the tool works

Enter your data to the fully adjustable tool

Our DEMPE analytics tool works by presenting you with a series of tables to fill out. Simply follow the instructions for each table, starting by editing the placeholder information to reflect the profit drivers, DEMPE functions and entities comprising the MNE.

Add profit drivers and their estimated contribution to the supply chain profits

It is easy to change the information in the cells. Just click on a cell and you will be able to delete/modify the text.

Add DEMPE functions and their relative contribution

In Tables 2 and 3, you can edit the circles to show which entities contribute to – and to what extent – the performance of DEMPE functions (Table 2) and how these functions correlate with the profit drivers (Table 3).

An empty circle means there is no contribution/correlation, a half-full circle represents partial contribution, and a full circle represents full contribution.

If you need to add or remove a row or a column, simply use the +/- buttons, located to the right of and at the top of the table.
