The ICE-Alert Mission... is to provide procurement specialists and other professionals with timely, reliable, easy to use, expert information about trends in U.S. prices, costs, demand strength and profitability. Our rigorous, proprietary industry data helps our subscribers to stay abreast of the risks and rewards that directly effect day-to-day business decisions.
Our Proprietary LMIQ Model Data... All cost indexes, demand indexes, margin estimates and measurements of costs per $100 of product are based on output from Thinking Cap Solutions' industry cost escalation (LMIQ) model. These measures are considered proprietary and are protected by copyright.  Note, also, all price indexes are from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and are not proprietary. Price indexes shown in some tables are rebased by Thinking Cap Solutions to allow for cost/price comparisons. The LMIQ model also uses data from the U.S. Census Bureau; the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis; the U.S. Commerce Department; and the Federal Reserve Board.
