The Negotiations Costing Model

The model allows the user to see the immediate summary results of dollar or percentage adjustments made to the salary schedule, and can accommodate a salary schedule with 12 lanes and 40 steps (for an additional fee SF.com can modify the system to handle more lanes/steps).
