zwer hmm...
kalps Well the rest of them are all predictable through estimates - sales is the only one that is an unknown variable
mikaelian he can't estimate the amount of sales that he'll lose as customers will go to Einstein Bagel to deal with humans not machines
AyshaAli will production = sales, cant detect this information so it sales which is hard to detect
