What interest rate is the government charging? (this works out to % as the daily interest rate) a)2.48% b) 2.50% c) 2.51% d) 2.68% e) 6.80%

Benefit-cost ratio analysis is frequently used for analyzing public sector projects –and can include costs or benefits that may not necessarily be considered if it was a private investment Can consider lots of other factors, including qualitative benefits/costs, etc. For example, could have environmental impacts, far-reaching economic effects, etc.

You can select between the Baseline model or the Gold Standard model for a new piece of equipment your company needs. The equivalent uniform annual costs and benefits of each are: –Baseline model: EUAC = $50k, EUAB = $75k –Gold Standard model: EUAC = $125k, EUAB = $140k Which model should you choose?

Since the BCR of each is greater than one, we do an incremental BCR

Which would you choose? Why?

© MG Lipsett, Department of Mechanical Engineering Engineering Management Group ENGM 401 & 620 – Fundamentals of Engineering Finance, Lecture 26: Other Analysis Techniques Benefit-Cost Ratio Analysis, Multiple Options When comparing more than one alternative project, we don’t necessarily want to choose the one with the largest BCR –For reasons similar to those for not automatically selecting the project with the largest IRR The method is to calculate incremental costs (∆C) and incremental benefits (∆B) for each progressively more expensive pair, which will allow us to calculate incremental benefit-cost ratios (∆BCR) for those pairs –If ∆BCR ≥ 1, then the more expensive project is worthwhile –This is because the incremental benefit is worth more than the incremental cost above the less expensive option

© MG Lipsett, Department of Mechanical Engineering Engineering Management Group ENGM 401 & 620 – Fundamentals of Engineering Finance, Lecture 26: Other Analysis Techniques Benefit-Cost Ratio In-Class Problem #2 Consider that you can choose one of six alternatives, each with the same useful life and with no salvage value: A B C D E F PW cost $4000$2000$6000$1000$9000$10000 PW benefit $7330$4700$8730$1340$9000 $9500 BCR Question:Question: Which alternative should you select? –Note: We don’t need to know i in this case because we’re given the PW of all of our cash flows. But if all we had were the actual cash flows, we’d need to calculate the PW cost and PW benefit ourselves, so we’d need to know i

23
© MG Lipsett, Department of Mechanical Engineering Engineering Management Group ENGM 401 & 620 – Fundamentals of Engineering Finance, Lecture 26: Other Analysis Techniques Payback Period Example Payback of 6 years (actually 5.24 years) In this case, there is value created in the first year, so we start the clock in year 1. In simple payback, we use future values directly (not discounted values)

© MG Lipsett, Department of Mechanical Engineering Engineering Management Group ENGM 401 & 620 – Fundamentals of Engineering Finance, Lecture 26: Other Analysis Techniques Sensitivity and Break-Even Analysis Sensitivity and break-even analysisSensitivity and break-even analysis determines which value of a particular parameter will result in a break-even scenario (and to which parameters a decision is sensitive) At break-even, costs equal revenues, NPV equals zero, two options are equivalent, etc. At this point the decision can go either way Example uses: –What cost do we set for a particular project so that it is equivalent to another project? –What timing should be used to build a multi-phase project? –How will the useful life of a piece of equipment impact a decision? Sensitivity concerns how much a parameter can change before it would affect a decision

28
© MG Lipsett, Department of Mechanical Engineering Engineering Management Group ENGM 401 & 620 – Fundamentals of Engineering Finance, Lecture 26: Other Analysis Techniques Sensitivity and Break-Even Analysis Example Your company needs to build a new plant. –Option A is to build all at once: The plant has the capacity you will need years from now, at a cost of $140k. –Option B is to build in two phases: Phase 1 provides the capacity you need for the first few years at a cost of $100k. Phase 2 provides the remaining additional capacity at a cost of $120k. –Both options have the same total useful lifetime, the same operation and maintenance costs, and no salvage value. With a WACC of 8%, at what time will the cost of both options be equivalent? –What does this mean? –At the time of equivalence the decision could be made for either option

29
© MG Lipsett, Department of Mechanical Engineering Engineering Management Group ENGM 401 & 620 – Fundamentals of Engineering Finance, Lecture 26: Other Analysis Techniques Sensitivity and Break-Even Analysis Example (2) both options are equivalent here (between 14 & 15 years out) Option B Option A The decision of which option to use is only sensitive to the timing if the range of estimates is in the area of 15 years. WACC = 8% This plot shows the effect on net present cost of option B phase 2 ($120k using discounted dollars), thus cheaper as phase 2 gets delayed

© MG Lipsett, Department of Mechanical Engineering Engineering Management Group ENGM 401 & 620 – Fundamentals of Engineering Finance, Lecture 26: Other Analysis Techniques Sensitivity and Break-Even Analysis Example (3) with i = 10%, options are equivalent here (11.4 years) Option B Option A The decision will also depend on our WACC, or the interest rate we use to calculate our discounted cash flows. If money is more costly, then Option B becomes preferable at an earlier point (discounted faster).

Solve by writing expressions that are equivalent for the two options And then solve for the unknown (unknown cost of B): Option A Option B NPV A = PWb – PWc NPV B = PWb –PWc Solve for the cost of B with the same NPV as for Option A

How long a useful life must a more expensive ($500) corrosion resistant part have if it is preferred over the ordinary part? Assume WACC= 10% Let’s find the breakeven life for the corrosion resistant part, using equivalent uniform annual costs. The annual cost of the untreated part: $350 × (A/P, 10%, 6) = $350 × (0.2296) = $80.36 The annual cost of the treated part must be at least this low, for breakeven
