6 Author: 240 $35/hour$8,400 Committee: $35/hour$8,400 TOTAL:$16,800

7 Reviewing packages: 160 $35/hour$5,600 Cost of average package: $10,000 TOTAL:$15,600

8 Screen Layouts: 80 $35/hour$2,800 Screen Transitions: 80 $35/hours$2,800 TOTAL:$5,600

9 Screen Layouts: 4 $35/hour$140 Screen Transitions: 4 $35/hours$140 TOTAL:$280

10 Typical 1 week training course reduced by 25% or a savings of 10 hours 250 employee an Hourly rate of $25: 250 employees * 10 hours * $25 = $62,500 in first yr TOTAL:$62,500

11 250 Users 1.5 errors eliminated per user per day 230 work days per year 2 minutes in recovery time per error Hourly rate of $ Users * 1.5 errors * 230 days * $0.833/error = $71,846 per year TOTAL:$71,846

12 250 Users 60 screens per day 230 days per year Processing time per screen reduced by 1 second Hourly rate of $ Users * 60 Screens * 230 days * 1/3600 hrs * $25 = $23,958 per yr TOTAL: $23,958

13 Changes made early cost ¼ of changes made after implementation 20 changes made early 1 day per change Hourly rate of $35 Early change cost = 20 changes * 8 hrs * $35 = $5,600 Late Change cost = 4 * early change cost = $5,600 Savings = Late change cost – early change cost = 16,800 in first yr TOTAL:$16,800

14  Costs = 20, , , , , , , = $72,925  Benefits = 62, , , ,800 = $ 175,104 Savings of 102,179
