    I imagine the above involves creating a new industry (for the new firm) by cloning the existing industry, and then change the Industry Spending Pattern. But the latter is an "event," and I'm not entirely sure what to do next.

    Thanks.

    Hello Eric,

    It sounds like the best methodology to use given your detailed information about the business is going to be Analysis by Parts (ABP). This will allow you to use that Industry Spending Pattern Event and edit commodities that won't be purchased in region like the other firms might typically do. The article ABP: Using an Industry Spending Pattern will walk you through the basics and Editing Industry Spending Pattern Events will give you some additional information on how to make those edits. Inside the Industry Spending Pattern you can add and delete commodities that are purchased by the business as well as adjust the percentage that is spent locally on them. The default will be the SAM, but you can change this to another value like 0% or delete it completely if it won't be purchased in your region.
