Engineering Economy – collections of technique to compare alternatives on the basis of economics

Alternatives – other methods to solve the same problem

Cash Flow – the total amount of money being transferred into and out of a business

Present worth (P) – equivalent value of future expenses/earnings based on interest

Intangible Factors – Variable that are objective and cannot be equated to a monetary value

Principal (PO) – initial amount of money invested or borrowed in transactions

Interest (I) – Manifestation of the time value money; Borrower – Paying; Lender – Earning

Simple Interest – interest is earn only on the principal amount

Compound Interest – Interest earned is in on the principal and amount accumulated in previous interest periods

Rate of Return [a.k.a. Interest rate, Return on Investment] (i) – Interest expressed in percentage

Inflation – Loss of value of money over time

Minimum Attractive Rate of Return [hurdle rate] (MARR) – Criterion used to evaluate engineering alternatives,

should be higher than cost of money to finance alternative plus rate on safe investment

Market Interest Rates – reflects ROR plus Inflation rate

Interest period (n) – determines how frequently interest is calculated

Future amount of money (F) – results from the cumulative effects of money

Economic Equivalence – That different sum of money at different times would be equal in economic value

Compounding – procedure of finding future value of present amount based on interest rates

Discounting – procedure of finding present value of future amount based on discounting rates

The Rule of 72 – number of years it will take for a sum of money to double its amount

Annuities (A) – occur in consecutive interest periods with the same amount each period

Arithmetic Gradient – a uniform amount

Geometric Gradient – constant percentage

Notation

Compounding ( )

Example: “the F given the P for an interest rate of i for n interest periods”

SINGLE PAYMENT FORMULAS

Problem 1: A business owner avails of a loan from a bank amounting to Php 500,000.00 to finance his expansion

project. The interest rate on the loan is set at 15% per annum. It is expected that he will be paying a total amount

of Php 1,529,511.43 at the end of the loan period. How many years are given to him by the bank to save up for the

loan payment?

Problem 2: A geothermal exploration and production company loaned an amount of Php 15M at 15% per annum

to finance the drilling of three geothermal wells. The loan will be fully repaid after 10 years. Drilling of the three

wells was finished by the end of year 2. Commissioning of the wells took another year before the wells were

considered ready for production. The first revenue stream from the wells came at the end of year 4 which

amounted to Php 3M. If the company decided to use their entire first revenue for the repayment of the loan, how

much will the company be left to pay at the end of the 10-year loan period?

Problem 3: An 18-year old college freshman is already thinking of setting up a retirement fund in a high-risk equity

fund that yields 18% per year. He is planning to deposit Php 20,000.00 as his initial investment two years from

now. Then, he is also planning to add another Php 15,000.00 every five years thereafter to his retirement fund

until he turns 40. However, if he decides to set-up his retirement fund today instead and allot a large one-time

investment, how much money should he have now so that the value of his retirement fund in his original plan will

be equal to the value of his retirement fund to his new plan by the time he turns 65 years old?

Problem 4: Two investment portfolios offer bonds to prospective clients in which one portfolio carries an interest

rate of 7% per annum and the other one offers an interest rate of 9% per annum. If one client decided to distribute

his Php 5M initial investment in these two funds, how much shall he allocate in these two funds so that by the end

of year 10, he will have equal sums of money in both investment products?

A manufacturing company realized a total saving of 200,000.00 in the current financial year due to the cost saving

improvements that it instituted throughout its product line two years ago.

If the company opts to invest this savings in a financial instrument yielding 8% per year to finance future capital

projects, what will be the equivalent value of the investment after ten years?

( )

If the company established the cost-saving measures four year ago, find the equivalent value of the savings two

year ago. Consider an interest rate of 8% per annum.

Five years ago, a businessman loaned an amount of 5M from a bank at an interest rate of 12% per year.

However, it encountered financial difficulties two years ago that prompted the business owner to avail of

another loan amounting to 1M at the same interest rate. The bank required the owner to repay the entirety of

the two loans, together with all the accrued interests, ten years after the first loan was made. Fortunately,

present sales exceeded expectations, thus, allowing the businessman to allocate 10% of the company’s profit in

the current financial year to the repayment of his loans. If the business registered a profit of 50M in the current

financial year, how much will be left for the business owner to pay off at the end of the loan period?

To save up on manpower expenses, a manufacturing firm intends to lay-off a quarter of its employees over a

period of ten years to give way for the machination of some of its processes. To purchase the required equipment,

the company needs to avail a 50M loan from a bank at an interest rate of 15% per annum. How much should be

the minimum annual payment of the company to ensure that the whole loan will be paid off within 20 years if the

first payment will be made a year after the loan was made?

was acquired, 300,000.00 after two years, 350,000 after three years, and increasing by 50,000.00 thereafter. At an

interest rate of 10% per year, what is the present worth of 10 years of maintenance cost?

A company hopes to have enough funds 12 years from now to finance its first major expansion overseas. To make

this possible, the company is planning to invest 1M two years from now on a fund yielding an annual interest rate

of 10%. Then, it pledges to increase its investment by 200,000.00 every year thereafter until the 10th year. How

The maintenance of a newly acquired hand tractor is projected to cost 25,000.00 after its first year of operation.

This cost is expected to increase by 3% every year thereafter. To cover for the 10 year maintenance cost of this

equipment, a fund is to be set up today, which earns an interest rate of 10%. How much should the fund be valued

today so that it can cover for the maintenance cost of the tractor for the next 10 years of its useful life?

A housing loan, amounting to 500,000.00, was availed by a home buyer from a bank at an annual interest rate of

14% to finance the down payment for a two-bedroom condominium unit that he intends to buy near his place of

work. The bank is providing him an option of settling his loan by making equal annual payments for the next 15

years. However, he wants to finish off paying his loan at the soonest possible time due to the high interest rate

that the bank charges him. His plan is to make a substantially large payment of 100,000.00 one year from now so

that his annual payments thereafter will decrease by 1%. Do you think he will be able to settle his debt obligation

from the bank in less than 15 years?
