Introduction to Elementary Economic analysis – Interest formulas and their applications- comparison – Present worth method- Future worth method- Annual equivalent method- Rate of return method. ELEMENTARY ECONOMIC ANALYSIS In a business situation there are many possibilities of ma in! an economic decision ma in! which becomes a part of its operations. In order to mana!e such economic decisions we can ma e use of simple economic analysis. Factors affecting economic decisions "he followin! are some of the ma#or factors to be considered in economic decision ma in!     Price of the raw materials "ransportation cost of the raw materials Availability of the raw materials $uality of the raw materials

Material selection for a product "he cost of a product can be reduced with the selection of raw materials. Amon! various elements of cost/ raw materials cost is most si!nificant. "he process of raw materials selection nd their substitution plays an important role. Design selection for a product "he desi!n modification of a product will result in reduced raw material requirements/ increased machinability of the materials and reduced labour. )esi!n is an important factor which decides the cost factor. Design selection for a process industry "he desi!n select with specific to the process will have sequential steps to be followed to avoid wasta!es and duplication of tas with the required cycle time of the product.
