Level of Detail:  Limited.  Only permits analyzing one product (i.e. frozen crickets or dried crickets) and one channel (i.e. wholesale or retail).  Does not permit simultaneous analysis of multiple products on multiple channels.

Level of Detail:  Moderate.  Permits simultaneous analysis of up to three products sold via three channels.
