SMP Investment A $500,000 investment in a surface mount placement machine is being considered. Over a 10-year planning horizon, it is estimated the SMP machine will produce net annual savings of $92,500. At the end of 10 years, it is estimated the SMP machine will have a $50,000 salvage value. Based on a 10% MARR and annual worth analysis, should the investment be made? AW(10%) = -$500K(A|P 10%,10) + $92.5K + $50K(A|F 10%,10) = $14,262.50 =PMT(10%,10,500000,-50000)+92500 = $14,264.57 DR.

DR. MAISARA MOHYELDIN GASIM ENGINEERING ECONOMY Example 7.4 Recall the example involving two alternative designs for a new ride at a theme park: Alt. A costs $300,000, has net annual after-tax revenue of $55,000, and has a negligible salvage value at the end of the 10-year planning horizon; Alt. B costs $450,000, has revenue of $80,000/yr., and has a negligible salvage value. Based on an AW analysis and a 10% MARR, which is preferred? AWA(10%) = -$300,000(A|P 10%,10) + $55,000 = -$300,000(0.16275) + $55,000 = $6175.00 =PMT(10%,10,300000)+55000 = $6176.38 AWB(10%) = -$450,000(A|P 10%,10) + $80,000 = -$450,000(0.16275) + $80,000 = $6762.50

If so, why was the MARR set equal to 12%?

DR. MAISARA MOHYELDIN GASIM ENGINEERING ECONOMY Example 7.7 Three industrial mowers (Small, Medium, and Large) are being evaluated by a company that provides lawn care service. Determine the economic choice, based on the following cost and performance parameters: First Cost: Operating Cost/Hr Revenue/Hr Hrs/Yr Useful Life (Yrs) Small $1,500

$35 $55 1,000 2 Medium $2,000 $50 $75 1,100 3 Large $5,000 $76 $100 1,200

MAISARA MOHYELDIN GASIM ENGINEERING ECONOMY Example 7.7 (Continued) AWsmall = -$1500(A|P 12%,2) + $20(1000) = $19,112.45 =PMT(12%,2,1500)+20*1000 = $19,112.45 AWmed = -$2000(A|P 12%,3) + $25(1100) = $26,667.30 =PMT(12%,3,2000)+25*1100 = $26,667.30 AWlarge = -$5000(A|P 12%,5) + $24(1200) = $27,412.95 =PMT(12%,5,5000)+24*1200 = $27,412.95 What did we assume when solving the example?

DR. MAISARA MOHYELDIN GASIM ENGINEERING ECONOMY Example 7.8 If a 5-year planning horizon were used, what salvage values are required to have the same AW as before? The small mower will be replaced at the end of year 4; the medium mower will be replaced at the end of year 3. One year of service of the small mower will have the following cash flows: SVsmall = $19,112.45(F|A 12%,1) - $20,000(F|A 12%,1) + $1500(F|P 12%,1) = $792.45 =FV(12%,1,-19112.45)-FV(12%,1,-20000,1500) = $792.45 SVmed = $26,667.30(F|A 12%,2) - $27,500(F|A 12%,2) + $2000(F|P 12%,2) = $743.48

=FV(12%,2,-26667.3)-FV(12%,2,-27500,2000) = $743.48 SVlarge = $0 DR. MAISARA MOHYELDIN GASIM ENGINEERING ECONOMY Principle #8 Compare investment alternatives over a common period of time DR. MAISARA MOHYELDIN GASIM ENGINEERING ECONOMY Fundamentals of Engineering Examination Even though you might not encounter a situation in your

professional practice that requires the least common multiple of lives assumption to be used, it is very likely you will have problems of this type on the FE Exam. Therefore, you need to be familiar with how to solve such problems. Specifically, on the FE Exam, unless instructions are given to do otherwise, calculate the annual worth for a life cycle of each alternative and recommend the one that has the greatest annual worth.
