4 Introduction NE 364 Engineering Economy

5 What is Engineering Economy?
Engineering Economy involves the systematic evaluation of the economic merits of proposed solutions to engineering problems. NE 364 Engineering Economy

6 Where can Engineering Economy provide answers?
Choosing the best design for a high efficiency gas furnace ? ? NE 364 Engineering Economy

7 Where can Engineering Economy provide answers?
Selecting the most suitable robot for a welding operation on an automotive assembly line. NE 364 Engineering Economy

8 Where can Engineering Economy provide answers?
Ex 2-11: Total Cost in material selection Material: 1112 screw machine steel? Or Brass screw stock? Economic selection among materials cannot be based solely on the costs of materials. Change in material may affect the design, processing cost, and shipping costs. NE 364 Engineering Economy

9 Where can Engineering Economy provide answers?
Ex 2-13: selecting alternative machine speeds Speed?? Increasing machine speed higher output rate BUT different machine downtime for maintenance. NE 364 Engineering Economy

10 Where can Engineering Economy provide answers?
Ex 2-16: Trade-offs in energy efficiency studies Energy efficiency affects the annual expense of operating an electrical device such as pump or motor. More energy-efficient device extra capital investment BUT  annual savings in electrical power expenses NE 364 Engineering Economy

11 Principles of Engineering Economy
1. Develop the Alternatives 2. Focus on the Differences 3. Use a Consistent Viewpoint 4. Use a Common Unit of Measure 5. Consider All Relevant Criteria 6. Make Uncertainty Explicit 7. Revisit Your Decisions NE 364 Engineering Economy

12 Engineering Economy & the Design Process
A sound engineering economic analysis procedure incorporates the basic seven principles . The seven-step procedure is also used to assist decision making within the engineering design process. NE 364 Engineering Economy
