The life cycle of a project A Project or "Business Plan" is a "technical and economic proposal for the resol ution of a current or future need, or to improve a situation, drawing on the res ources available now or in future by a business group or organization, obtaining from this activity add value to the company itself and for society, "An investm ent project has a life cycle closely related to" the four stages of an investmen t ", which correspond to six stages of a project. Project Objectives • Describe the idea in detail • Decide between several alternatives • Maximize By planning in Mexico are more than 60,000 projects a year, and more than 2000 programs of p ublic and private funding, one of the factors Funding is important for the descr iption of the idea through a Business Plan • • • Realistic Full Systematic Identification consists of taking the decision on which project shall be to all that the investor has available to it, is a critical phase because it is the mos t influential in creating corporate value. Intecplan ® v2.0 The First Software Development and Evaluation of Projects in Mexico Formulation is the drafting of Business Plan by describing the environment, alte rnatives, and decisions in each of the studies and chapters describing the idea of complete and understandable to anyone who will make decisions about the proje ct. The Business Plan consists of four studies describing the idea completely. The B usiness Plan may be made at pre-feasibility or feasibility level, depending on t he depth and detail of the studies and chapters. The result of this formulation is the document we call "Business Plan" and will serve the employer, partners, funders (banks, public institutions or development banks), employees, suppliers, and all those who will be involved in Project act ively. Engineering consists of the detailed design of all items specified in the formulation of the project. Includes product engineering, plant, and systems, a s well as logistics and technological development. Resource Management is to obt ain economic resources (credit, capital, leases, sales agreements, contracts), p hysical (plant, materials, machinery, supplier selection), legal (permits, paten ts, licenses, rights, trade marks) and human expressed in the Project and detail ed engineering. Execution is the integration of economic resources, physical and human whose management is performed on stage before, according to the scheduled times in the project, and considered by the engineering requirements and negoti ations carried out. Operation The project is received by the team that will oper ate and be responsible for the recovery of investment and quality assurance. 2. The Business Plan A project consists of four studies, each of which, in turn, is divided into chap ters describing in full the proposed Project. 2.1. The market study "Market Rese arch is the start of the project and aims to measure the number of individuals, businesses or other entities under certain conditions buy such quantities of the product, which justifies the project. The "Market Analysis" reflects the extern al situation of the project, and to be useful, the critical point is the quantit y and quality of information, finding information has a considerable cost in tim e and money, so it must be sufficiently plenty to give a complete picture, but n ot to fire the costs of obtaining it will be useful to the extent that reflects the real situation in its main aspects. Chapters: identification, segmentation, demand, supply, market size, price, marketing, promotion, and budget revenues. The outcome of the Market Study is to reach the "Revenue Budget" 2.2. The Technical Study "Technical Study" is that by which we define the method

s, techniques and technology used to achieve the production of goods or services to be marketed. If the market study defines how we will sell, on the technical study must answer the question "How are we going to do the production that enabl e sales" The "technical study" reflects the internal situation of the draft chap ters: specifications, location, process , suppliers, human resources, environmen tal, intellectual property, investment budget, and budget costs. The technical study has a chapter on "Intellectual Property"€that including info rmation on trademarks, patents, industrial designs, copyrights and licenses. The end result is the Technical Study "Investment and Expenditure Budget." 2.3. The Financial Study "Financial Study" is one in which financial and economi c projections made for measuring the viability and expected return on the projec t to evaluate a project we use three measures of profitability, which are models of investment decisions that will decide whether a project is viable, or compar e the benefits of various options. Chapters: relevant flow, evaluation, capital structure, financing plan, cash flow, pro forma financial statements, and econom ic evaluation. The Project Financial Evaluation is done by calculating three mea sures of profitability that apply to the relevant cash flows: Net Present Value is the sum of "present value" of all project cash flows to a "Discount Rate "giv en, sometimes the" cost of capital ", but more often depending on the risk rate of the project. Internal Rate of Return is the rate at which the net present val ue of flows of the project is equal to zero, is a very illustrative, but have hi gh variability, should always be considered in conjunction with other measures. Recovery Time The recovery time is simple when the accumulated cash flows are eq ual to zero, indicating the time of economic life in which the initial investmen t is recovered fully, regardless of the value of money over time other measures, complement to the above, but are equivalent to the Net Present Value are set re covery time, and cost-benefit ratio. 2.4. Study Organization The "Study of Organization" is one in determining how to operate the project and the timetable for implementation, ie to deliver the peo ple running it will operate. Intecplan ® v2.0 chapters map and links Once identified and completed the three budgets (revenues, investments, and cost s) in the market and technical studies, are automatically calculated all chapter s of the financial study assumptions and estimates which the user can change acc ording to their own planning. In the Business Plan, all chapters are interrelate d, and are drifting from each other to form a logical, systematic, and consisten t. 3.
