Payback Period
Principle: How fast can I recover my initial investment? Method: Based on cumulative cash flow (or accounting profit) Screening Guideline: If the payback period is less than or equal to some specified payback period, the project would be considered for further analysis. Weakness: Does not consider the time value of money

Present Worth Analysis
Net Present Worth of initial and future cash flows can be used to select among alternative projects. It is important to understand what Net Present Worth means, especially when the cash flows include both revenue and expenses.

Terminology
Salvage Value – the amount of money you can expect to receive by selling an asset when you are done with it. What value does it have when you are done with it? MARR – Minimum Attractive Rate of Return – I expect or need this return in order to be willing to invest my money.

Example Problem
Project A costs $10,000 and will last for 10 years. Annual, end of the year revenues will be $3,000, and expenses will be $1,000. There is no salvage value. Project B costs $10,000 and will also last for 10 years. Annual revenues will be $3,000 with annual expenses of $1,500. Salvage value is $5,000. Conduct an economic analysis to select the preferred project using a MARR of 10% per year, compounded annually.

What does this mean?
NPWA = $2,289 NPWB = $1,144 We prefer project A over project B. Does NOT mean $2289 profit! Concept: We favor Project A by $2,289 over taking $10,000 and putting it in an account earning 10%.

In other words…
With expenses and revenues known, select the largest NPW > 0 ∴ Select Project A What does this mean? At i = 10%, $2,000 at the end of each of the next 10 years is worth, today, $2,289 more than the initial cost of $10,000.

Further…
You would be willing to pay as much as $10,000 + $2,289 = $12,289 for the project. At that price and at i = 10%, you are indifferent between: 1. Investing $12,289 for 10 years at i = 10%. 2. Obtaining $2000 at the end of each of the next 10 years (and reinvesting each receipt at 10%).

Illustrating…
F10 = ($10,000 + $2,289) (F | P, 10%, 10) = ($10,000 + $2,289) (2.594) = $31,875 F10 = $2000 (F | A, 10%, 10) = $2000 (15.937) = $31,875

Thus…
The project only costs $10 000, but at i = 10% it is equivalent to investing $10 000 + 2 289 for 10 years. Since PW > 0, you are actually earning more than 10% on investment.

Problem 1
A company is considering the purchase of a new piece of testing equipment that is expected to produce $8,000 additional income during the first year of operation. This amount will decrease by $500 per year for each subsequent year of ownership. The equipment costs $20,000 and will have an estimated salvage value of $3,000 after 8 years of use. For a MARR of 15% compounded annually, determine the net present worth of this investment.

(Net) Present Worth Analysis
When comparing projects, it is necessary to compare alternatives with the same project life (i.e., over the same period of time).

Present Worth Analysis
When applied correctly, NPW can be used to select among various alternative projects. • The larger the NPW the better. • Requires establishing MARR. • MARR is used as the (i) in the equations.
