None - they're all brand new.

Number is irrelevant here. Brand is the important and how they have been successful to get their balls to there!

Ok, so, this is coming from a senior (read older) person who has had quite a lot of experience with this kind of stuff. The question is designed not so that you provide a quant kind of answer. It’s designed so that you formulate what kinds of questions to ask. Like: “who is asking this question?”, “what is the aim and focus of the question(to reduce ball consumption? To get a new client to supply balls?)? Who do I speak to to find out how many balls were consumed over a period of time? Is consumption rising/falling/stable? Is the quality of balls an issue? Is this just a simple maths equation or are you asking me to dig deeper. If you just answered with a flat guesstimated number above, what model were you basing this on and where could there be a margin for error?

Hi I did face to face competency and skills interview with a senior manager for an analyst role last friday for DMS and its Thursday now and I haven't heard from them until now. Do I consider my application as unsuccessful given that I haven't heard from them up until now? I would appreciate your thoughts
