A. RESEARCH PLAN I. RESEARCH OBJECTIVES AND PLAN 1.1: Research objectives According to Porter, Competitive advantages give a company an edge over its rivals and an ability to generate greater value for the firm and its shareholders. The more sustainable the competitive advantage, the more difficult it is for competitors to neutralize the advantage. (Porter, n.d.) There are two main types of competitive advantages: comparative advantage and differential advantage. Comparative advantage, or cost advantage, is a firm's ability to produce a good or service at a lower cost than its competitors, which gives the firm the ability sell its goods or services at a lower price than its competition or to generate a larger margin on sales. A differential advantage is created when a firm's products or services differ from its competitors and are seen as better than a competitor's products by customers. This study will show that customers awareness, products/services of Yamaha company and market demand. Following will be overall and specific research objective: To identify advantages and disadvantages of scooters Yamaha compared with

scooters of other bands. To identify relationship between customerss perception with Yamaha. To determine the effectiveness of scooters of Yamaha.

The subject is focused to research which is scooter Nouvo of Yamaha. 1.2: Plan of collecting primary data The researchers will use primary data and secondary data. Primary data is data which is collected and observed directly by user throughout the study process. Secondary data is data which is collected not by user, but by someone else for users aims. Secondary data will be collected before gathering primary data.

II. SURVEY METHODOLOGY AND SAMPLING METHODS 2: Survey Methodology and Sampling Methods 2.1: Survey Methodology Questionnaire

The questionss content and the answers of customers are the primary means to collect the data. Therefore, the main purpose of this survey is learning more about the feedback of customers whether they feel satisfied or not. There are 100 volunteers to answer the research questions. Questionnaires focus mainly on the behavior of the customers toward company which were given to customers of Yamaha in Hanoi. The researchers came to Royal city to give respondents of customers. The questionnaire had 23 questions. They were divided into 3 parts: personal profile, information of product researched "Nouvo" and the assessment about Yamahas products and services by factors of competitive advantage. Through 23 relevant questions, the researchers will collect the information needed to clarify the concept, and the degree of satisfaction of Yamaha's customers with products and services in the interests competitive edge. Since then, the impact of competitive advantage of Yamaha will be evaluated. 2.2: Sampling Methods To carry out the survey and data collection, the researchers have used sampling methods are classified as either probability or nonprobability. In probability samples, each member of the population has a non-zero probability is known to be chosen. Probability methods include random sampling, the sampling system and stratified sampling. In nonprobability sampling, members are selected from the population in some nonrandom way. (statpac, 2012) Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages and the researchers must have an understanding of this to choose the right method in accordance with the survey. In our situation, we select a random sample that is "a sample selected in such a way that all items in the population have an equal chance of being included." (BBP, 2010). We chose this method because it is a simple technique that allows us to conduct the survey with customers that we met. Moreover, it can save our time and costs. Also, if all the requirements provided a model then the answer would be the high representative.

Research sampling is about the way that researchers use for selecting 100 customers as respondents to make a typical result for the whole customers using Yamahas services. The researchers did surveys 100 customers in the Royal City. III. DESIGN A QUESTIONNAIRE AND EXPLANATION 3.1: Questionnaire layout Customer awareness is one aspect of development strategy reflects the company's success in the market. Therefore, conduct regular surveys play an important role in the development plans of the company to meet customers goods. We tried to design an appropriate questionnaire to survey an effective and successful research. following is a question and our explanation for it. The questionnaire is designed on one A4 page including 23 questions divided into 2 main parts: Part 1(from question 1 to 6): Respondents profile includes gender, age, product Nouvo are being used, time used and knowledge about Nouvo. Part 2 (from question 7 to 23): Assessment of the influence of competitive advantage based on 3 factors: design, service, payment price. 3.2: Response format From question 1 to question 6 is questions about customers profile. It helps researchers identify demographic information of respondents who using and have ever used Nouvo of Yamaha company. Those questions help the researchers understand more respondents to easily assess awareness and behavior of respondents based on their demographic matters. From question 7 to question 23 are the questions which research about influence of competitive advantage. we apply likert scale for 8 questions: 9, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20 . For example, for question about the level of satisfaction of Yamaha Nouvo, we apply likert scale to express 5 levels of evaluation, including Very dissatisfy (0-1), Dissatisfy (1-2), Normal (23), Satisfy (3-4), and very satisfy (4-5).
