The answer to most of your questions can be found in RP publications such
as Dayton, Austin, Nottingham, SME/RPA, etc. conference proceedings. Some
of the vendor sites also have customer stories that show actual savings.

>Louisiana, Lafayette, LA. I am doing my Masters Thesis in

What is your thesis topic?

A basic understanding of RP can be gained from reading Marshall Burn's
book. Look at Terry Wholer's site for a list of books on RP that can be
ordered. If you have no library of such materials your advisor should help
you build such a library. Also read the RP Report and the RP Journal.
Rapid News gives you the industrial version of the RP world. Terry
Wholer's annual report will provide you some interesting figures.
