Cost Analysis
Optimize Business of Beacon Aircraft Interiors
Esquire Elite will optimize the business performance of Beacon Aircraft Interiors This will allow Beacon Aircraft interiors to increase total revenue netted annually.

Cost Benefit Analysis

Validates the projects validity to Beacon Aircraft Interiors. By enhancing the performance of Beacon Aircraft Interiors they can expect to increase their amount of jobs completed annually. The Service Fee of the project will be offset by the potential revenue increase.

Cost Benefit Analysis

In order to calculate the potential revenue increase Esquire Elite will analyze the potential increase in business that would result from implementing their business plan. Currently BAI can handle an average of fifty jobs per year. The average profit of each renovation is $6,000. The total cost of each project can vary substantially; however, once BAI supplies all the necessary materials for the job the average profit margin remains the same. Once BAI improves their performance with software improvements we project that an average of 75 renovations can be done per year. Esquire Elite projects that it will take five years to fully implement the changes and increase the amount of jobs per year to the projected 75 jobs. The increase in performance will result in an average of $30,000 per year increase of revenue for Beacon Aircraft Interiors and it can be measured by 10% improvement annually. By year five Beacon Aircraft Interiors can expect to profit $150,000 more that year than if they maintained their current status.

Service Fee
To accumulate the service fee of this project each Work Breakdown Packet has an allotted cost that is directly associated with the amount of time that Esquire Elite spent on each packet. Esquire Elite determined that one hundred and twenty dollars an hour is an appropriate amount to bill for each hour of their time. Each packet hour is then calculated into the total hours spent on the project. The total amount of the hours spent on the project was 122 hours. To calculate the Service Fee to be billed to Beacon Aircraft Interiors, Esquire Elite multiplied the total hours spent on the project by what our organization time is worth per hour. 122 hours x $120 = $14,640

Business Plan
The project strategy of Esquire Elite is to develop a superior operations manual to implement into the organization of Beacon Aircraft Interiors. In order to accomplish this Esquire Elite performed an extensive analysis during the planning phase on the current operations of Beacon Aircraft Interiors. Once Esquire Elite developed a needs list of Beacon Aircraft Interiors they then planned to divide the organization structure into two parts, which were office operations and software operations. This will allow Esquire Elite to better manage the separate entities.

Final Analysis
Esquire Elite has analyzed and developed management techniques that will enhance the ability of Beacon Aircraft Interiors to perform their jobs more efficiently and in a timelier manner. This will give Beacon Aircraft Interiors the ability to increase the number of jobs per year which will increase revenue, as well as, Beacon Aircraft Interiors reputation. Beacon Aircraft Interiors will develop business practices that will set them apart from the competition and give them an edge over their market.
