2001 . Reservation/De-reservation of items for manufacture in the small scale sector is a continuing process regularly monitored by an Advisory committee on Reservation constituted under the IDR Act. the only exception being the case of large units which undertake minimum level of exports as 75 per cent of their total roduction. grants protection to small scale sector. The policy of reservation initiated in 1967 primarily as promotional and protective measure vis-a-vis the large scale sector.06. One of the measure of the policy support for promoting small scale industries is the policy of reservation of economically viable and technically feasible items for exclusive manufacture in the small scale sector.The IDR Act was amended in March. at present the total number of items reserved for small scale sector are 799 as on 29.Position of SSI The phenomal growth of industries in the Small Scale sector has been striking feature in the economic development of the country since independence. 1984 empowering Government to reserve items for the small scale sector. It has contributed to the overall growth or the Gross Domestic Product as well as in terms of employment generation and export.

Position of SSI The small scale sector has acquired a prominent place in the socio-economic development of the country during the past four and a half decades. the increase was 11.58. has direct impact on the growth of the national economy. .000 units in the year 200001. which forms a part of total industrial sector. The increase in the year 1998-99 & 1999-2000 were 7.3% in 1995-96 and 1996-97 respectively. their production. employment and exports over the years. 70. The estimated increase for 2000-01 is 8. therefore. there has been a steady increase over the previous years ranging between 7%-10% during the period 1990-91 to 1994-95.43%. and 8.000 units in 1990-91. In 199798 the increase over the previous year was registered at 8.7%.4% and11. On the production front also. There has been a steady increase in the number of SSI units.16% respectively. the number of units has increased to 33. from 19.09%. Performance of the small scale sector.

(Subject to the condition that the unit is not owned. controlled or subsidiary of any other industrial undertaking . 21. An industrial undertaking in which the investment in fixed assets in plant and machinery whether held on ownership terms on lease or on hire purchase does not exceed Rs 5 Crore.e.1999.f.INVESTMENT LIMITS FOR SSI Small Scale Industrial Undertakings The following requirements are to be complied with by an industrial undertaking to be graded as Small Scale Industrial undertaking w.12.

INVESSTMENT LIMIT FOR TINY INDUSTRIES The Enterprises Investment limit in plant and machinery in respect of tiny enterprises is Rs 25 lack irrespective of location of the unit. .

Small firms promote self-employment particularly among the educated and professional class. Several empirical studies have revealed that the employment generating capacity of small scale industries in about in times more than that of the large scale industries. the healthy growth of small scale industries can be an effective approach to the pressing problem of unemployment in the country. Next to agriculture small business constitutes the most popular occupation of people in India. they have high potential to provide employment to a larger number of people per unit of capital.ROLE OF SSI IN NATIONAL ECONOMY Employment: Small scale firms use labour-intensive techniques and. For every worker employed in large scale industries about three workers are engaged in small scale and cottage industries with regard to large scale industry. They also provide employment to agriculturists who remain idle during a part of the year. therefore. . In fact.

.ROLE OF SSI IN NATIONAL ECONOMY Balanced Regional Development: small scale industries promote decentralized development and help to remove regional disparities in industrialization. By providing employment in rural areas they help to check migration and overcrowding in urban areas. Small scale firms can be a useful means of rural reconstruction and development. Development of decentralized sector also improves the standard of living of people in backward regions. Decentralized development contributes to the process of self-sustained growth and avoids concentration of industries in particular areas.

Small firms also provide quick returns after their establishment on account of short gestation period. therefore.ROLE OF SSI IN NATIONAL ECONOMY Optimization of Capital: Small scale firms require less capital per unit of output and. greater output can be obtained with small investment.757 in case of large scale industry. .706 as compared to Rs. In India where the rate of capital formation is low. 27. small scale industries are very suitable. The Annual Surveys of industries reveal that fixed capital per employee in case of small scale industry was Rs. 3.

. Small business promotes a new cadre of small entrepreneurs and selfemployed and encourages local talent. The growth of small enterprises helps in tapping talent resources like entrepreneurial skills and small savings specially in rural areas. Small business helps to protect technical skills and handicrafts.ROLE OF SSI IN NATIONAL ECONOMY Mobilization of Local Resources: Small scale industries facilitate Mobilization and utilization of local resources and family skills which might otherwise remain talent or utilized.

637 crores in 1975-76 to Rs. Small scale sector accounts for 40 percent of the exports of non-traditional items and about 25 per cent of the country's total exports.ROLE OF SSI IN NATIONAL ECONOMY Exchange Earnings: Small scale industries help in reducing pressure on the country's balance of payments in two ways. they earn valuable foreign exchange through exports of their products. About 90 per cent of its exports are of non-traditional items. 2785 crores in 1985-86. Secondly. First. they do not require imports of sophisticated machinery and equipment. The exports of small scale industries increased from Rs. .

Feeder to Large industries: small scale sector is complementary to the large scale industries. Small scale industries manufacture various types of components, spare parts, tools and accessories which are required by the large scale sector.

Social Advantage: Small scale units offer opportunity for an independent way of life to people with small means. They offer savings in social overheads like education, housing and medical facilities by taking industry nearer to the people. They help to raise per capita income an standard of living in the country. A system of widely diffused ownership permits wider participation of people in the process of economic development. Small scale sector provides a base for democracy, socialism and selfgovernment. At present there are about 16 lakh small scale units in India producing more than 500 times. The Seventh Fiver Year Plan envisages a growth rate of 10 per cent in the small scale sector. By the end of 1990 the production of small scale sector is expected to be Rs. 8,000 crores and employment 1.19 crore persons.

Labour intensive Small-scale industries are fairly labour-intensive. They provide an economic solution by creating employment opportunities in urban and rural areas at a relatively low cost of capital investment.

Flexibility Small-scale industries are flexible in their operation. They adopt quickly to various factors that play a large part in daily management. Their flexibility makes them best suited to constantly changing environment.

It is mostly set up by individuals.' they provide an outlet for expression of the entrepreneurial spirit.CHARECTERSTICS OF SSI One-man show A small-scale unit is generally a one-man show. As they are their own boss. . the activities are mainly carried out by one of the partners or directors. Therefore. the decision making process is fast and at times more innovative. Even some small units are run by partnership firm or company.

Localized operation Small-scale industries generally restrict their operation to local areas in order to meet the local and regional demands of the people. They cannot enlarge their business activities due to limited resources. .CHARECTERSTICS OF SSI Use of indigenous raw materials Small-scale industries use indigenous raw materials and promote intermediate and capital goods. They contribute to faster balanced economic growth in a transitional economy through decentralization and dispersal of industries in the local areas.

It is the time period between setting the units and commencement of production. . This helps the entrepreneur to earn after a short period of time.CHARECTERSTICS OF SSI Lesser gestation period Gestation period is the period after which the return or investment starts. Capital will not be blocked for a longer period. Smallscale industries usually have a lesser gestation period than large industries.

Hardly there is any need of specialized knowledge and skill to operate and manage the SSI. .CHARECTERSTICS OF SSI Lower Educational level The educational level of the employees of small industries is normally low or moderate.

They always try to keep high margins in their pricing. . This is one of the reason for which the unit may lead to closure.CHARECTERSTICS OF SSI Profit motive The owners of small industries are too much profit conscious.

The project may not fulfill socio-economic objectives of country. 2. NOCs, approvals, licenses, foreign collaboration, foreign exchange and other government policies. 3. The procedure and documents of financial institutions and banks may delay the implementation of the project.

Assessment of Viability
It means whether some idea will work or not. Viability is a multivariate concept, i.e., a project has to be viable not only in technical terms but also in economic and commercial terms. Moreover, There is always a possibility that a project that is technically feasible may not be economically viable. The decision to implement a project will be based on the expected revenues that the investment is going to generate. The project can be considered feasible only if it is expected to generate sufficient revenues and profit to justify the investment in it.

Evaluation of Project
Following are the techniques to evaluation of project profitability: 1. Benefit Cost Analysis 2. Discounted Cash Flow method 3. Net Present Value (NPV) 4. Internal Rate of Return(IRR)

A product is considered to be attractive only when the benefits to be derived from its production are much more than the cost associated with it. the ratio of benefits to cost associated with a particular project producing the product is ascertained and decision is made either to accept or reject the proposal. one has to calculate the benefits as well as disbenefits likely to arise from a product in financial terms. . For the purpose of analysis. The net value shall be compared with the total cost associated with project less the salvage value.Benefit Cost Analysis method Under this method.

Benefit Cost Ratio is equal to Benefits.Disbenefits.Maintenance and operation cost Total cost of project-Salvage Value If the value is less then or equal to 1. such a project is economically viable .

The time value of money means that the money received in present has more value than an equal amount of money received in future. IRR and NPV methods. These drawbacks are removed in DCF. .Discounted Cash Flow Method The traditional methods of evaluating profitability like the accounting rate of return and the payback method suffer from two major deficiencies. they do not evaluate the time value of money and secondly. Firstly. The basis of discounted cash flow method is presence of time factor in evaluating the future returns of a project. they do not evaluate project profitability over its full life.

he would prefer to receive 100 Rs today because of increasing value of money and after one year he will get Rs 110 if he invest these money with 10 percent interest. Under this techniques.If A is offered the two alternatives of either receiving 100 Rs today or 100 Rs after one year. . one can get discount value of his money over a long future time.

It is similar to IRR method. If the net present value is positive its means project is earning Higher rate of return but if the net present value is negative its means rate of return is lower and some better investment opportunities are required. .Net Present Value This method is also recognize the time value of money for evaluating investment proposal. The present value of cash inflow less the present value of cash out flow gives the net present value.

Internal Rate Of Return This method uses the discounted cash flow rate which equates the present value of the future cash inflows with the initial investment. The internal rate of return is the discounted rate which makes the net present value equal to zero. The cash flows through out the life of the project are forecasted and the discount rate is calculated. It is a type of discounted cash flow techniques which takes into account the time factor to value the future cash flow. .

Feasibility Analysis
It is a process of evaluating the acceptability of a project idea within the limitation of project management and constraints imposed by the environment. The analysis is undertaken to analyzes the desirability of investing in future development of project idea. At the stage of project formulation three alternative can raise. Firstly, the project may appear to be positive and in such case the entrepreneur can proceed to invest further. Secondly, the project may turn out to be not feasible and, therefore, further investment in project idea is ruled out.

Thirdly, the idea is not adequate for arriving at a decision about the feasibility of the project. In such situation, additional information must be collected for taking an appropriate action/decision. Feasibility analysis has two type. Pre-feasibility analysis It refers to preliminary assessment of the project idea which helps in accepting or rejecting it. Normally, this study should be completed within the period of three months to enable entrepreneur to decide weather to accept the new venture or not. It enables to examine the potential demand, size of market, number of competitors, plant, machinery, location, size manpower etc.

Feasibility Analysis It is carried out to get a detailed information on different aspects relating to a project such as economic, technical, managerial, organizational, commercial and financial aspect of project. As compared to pre feasibility analysis with feasibility analysis, this analysis involve more specialized skills and more complicated. Further, the feasibility study is based on additional and more reliable data collected through research. The information gathered in feasibility study and analysis presented in various tables, reports or statement is consolidated into one single report which is called project report or feasibility report.

It produces necessary information on which the project design can be based. and 2) selection of the optimal technology suitable for achieving the project objectives. It also indicates weather the economy is in a position to absorb the output of the project. An optical size of the and adoption of appropriate technology would help in deriving the economies of scale.Techno Economic Analysis Techno-economic analysis is primarily concerned with 1)identification of the project demand potential. .

Project Design & Network Analysis It is highly useful for identification and quantification of the project inputs which are very much required for developing the financial and cost benefit analysis. . This plan is presented in the form of network diagram. Project design defines the individual activities comprising a project and inter-relationship between those activities. The interrelationship presented with the help of a network design. Network design and analysis help in executing the project within the minimum time and ensuring effective utilization of the available resources. Network analysis is concerned with development of the detailed work plan of the project.

The resources required for the project are classified as human and non-human resources. Human resources refer to manpower and its management while nonhuman resources refers to material. . quantification and evaluation of project inputs. money and machinery.Input Analysis Input analysis involves identification. The objectives of input analysis are to identify the nature of the resources that a project will consume to estimate the magnitudes of the required resources and to evaluate the possibility of uninterrupted supply of inputs.

Input requirement constitute the basis of cost estimates of the project. These cost estimates are very much required for developing the financial requirements and cost benefit profile of the project. .

This analysis involves the estimates of project costs and revenues and funds required for the project. It also helps in examine the feasibility of the project in terms of generating revenues to attain the objectives of the project.Financial Analysis The purpose of financial analysis is to identify the financial characteristics of an investment proposition which would determine its financial feasibility. .

profit analysis and fund flow analysis etc to determine the estimated financial performance of the project. . It reduce the investment proposition to one common scale so as to permit comparison and eventually investment decision. It generates data for computing different profitability criteria with a view to establish the project’s worth to the enterprise.Financial analysis uses analytical tools like ratio analysis.

As an essential part of project formulation and appraisal. . management have to be forward-looking and carry out market and demand analyses of products and develop strategic business policies. To survive in the market. market and demand analysis is vital so that capacity and facility location can be planned and implemented in line with the market requirements. A major error in demand forecast can throw painstaking capita expenditure on plant capacity and other hardware facility totally out of gear.DEMAND ANALYSIS Emerging competition in market place is propelling managements to hear the voice of their customers.

. The subjective considerations may not emerge from any predetermined analysis or approach. Prediction is an estimate of future events and trends in a subjective manner without taking into account the past data.FORECAST VERSUS PREDICTION Forecast is an estimate of future events and trends and is arrived at by systematically combining past data and projecting it forward in a predetermine a manner.

any major mismatch between forecast and manufacture will lead to higher capital tied up in finished products which are slow in selling. . Even in a batch type production. High volume high technology mass production systems have further high-lighted the importance of accurate demand forecasts.NEED FOR DEMAND FORECASTING All business planning starts with forecasting Capital investment. like procurement of raw materials and production planning. has to relate to demand forecasting.

Demand forecasting is the estimate of future demand. As the future is always uncertain, forecasting cannot be completely fool proof and correct. However, the very process of forecasting demand in future involves evaluating various forces and factors which influence demand. This exercise is very rewarding in itself as it enables the personnel to know about various market forces, currents, cross-currents and under-currents relevant to the demand behavior.

 Firm Level If the exercise aims at forecasting demand

of firm's products locally at state, region or national level, it is a micro-level of demand forecasting. Sometimes, forecasts are required for company's products in specific industry or market segment.
 Industry Level such a demand forecasting exercise

focuses on an industry as a whole for the region and/or national level. These forecasts may be undertaken by a group of companies or by industry/trade associations.

 National Level Demand forecasts at national level

include parameters like national income, expenditure, index of industrial and/or agricultural production etc. Estimating aggregate demand of products at national level facilitates governmental decisions for imports, exports, pricing policy etc.

trends in consumption etc at international level. International Level Companies operating in multinational markets would require similar forecasting of demands for its products. national and international levels. . industry. Time horizon of these demand forecasts usually varies from 1 to S years and in rare instances upto 10 years. Managerial Economists play a leading role in masterminding these forecasts at firm.

METHODS OF FORECASTING. promotion and place. reviewed and revised to take into account changes in design/features of products. Thus "collective opinion survey forms the basic of market analysis and demand forecasting. state and/or region. territory. These estimates are collated. Herein each salesperson makes an estimate of the expected sales in their respective area. people. Opinions of all managers involved at various levels of sales organization are also included in the survey.DEMAND  Collective Opinion Survey Sales personnel are closest to the customers and have an intimate feel of the market. price. . projected advertising and sales promotion campaigns and anticipated changes in competitors :marketing policies covering product. changes in selling prices. Thus they are most suited to assess consumers reaction to company's products.

Although this method is simple. first hand and most acceptable. direct.  Salesperson may not prepare the demand estimates with the requisite seriousness and care. it suffers from following weaknesses:  Estimates are based on personal judgment which may not be free from bias.  Owing to limited experience. usually in their employment.  Adding together demand estimates of individual salespersons to obtain total demand of the country maybe risky as each person has knowledge about a small portion of market only. salesperson may not have the requisite knowledge and experience .

These surveys serve useful purpose in establishing relationships between:  demand and price  demand and income of consumers  demand and expenditure on advertisement etc .Survey of Customers Intention Another method of demand forecasting is to carry out a survey of what consumers prefer and intend to buy. survey would involve interviewing them. It is neither realistic nor desirable to query all consumers either through direct contact or through printed questionnaire by mail. If the product is sold to a few large industrial buyers. If it is a consumer durable product. a sample survey is carried out for questioning a few representative consumers about what they are planning or intending to buy.

Herein experts in the field of marketing research and demand forecasting are engaged in analyzing economic conditions  carrying out sample surveys of market  conducting opinion polls .Delphi Method of Demand Forecasting Delphi method is a group process and aims at achieving a `consensus' of the members.

Coordinator designs a new set of questions and gives them to the same experts who answer back again in writing. . Based on the summary. Coordinator repeats the process of collating. Written predictions of experts are collated. demand forecast is worked out in following steps: Coordinator sends out a set of questions in writing to all the experts co-opted on the panel who are requested to write back a brief prediction. Steps 3 and 4 are repeated by the Coordinator to experts with diverse backgrounds until consensus is reached. editing and summarizing the responses. edited and summarized together by the Coordinator.     Based on the above.

.Nominal Group Technique This is a further modification of Delphi method of forecasting.  After everyone has written down their ideas. discuss 'and rank all the suggestions in descending order as per the following procedure:  Experts sit around a table in full view of one another and are asked to speak to each other. A panel of seven to ten experts is formed and allowed to interact.  Facilitator hands over copies of questionnaire needing a forecast and each expert is expected to write down a list of ideas about the questions.  Experts give ideas in rotation until all of them are written on the `flip chart'. Facilitator asks each expert to share one idea out of own list with the group. The idea shared is written on the `flip chart' which everyone can see. No discussion takes place in this phase and usually 15 to 25 ideas emerge from this format.

experts are asked to give in writing ranks to ideas according to their perception of priority. Facilitator ensures that all ideas have been adequately discussed. During discussions similar ideas are combined and paraphrased appropriately. . In the next phase.  After completing group discussions. This reduces the number of ideas. experts discuss ideas presented by them.

simple Average Method is the first one that comes to one's mind. Herein.Simple Average Method Among the quantitative techniques for demand analysis. we take simple average of all past periods . Simple Average : Sum of Demands of all periods Number of periods . Thus.simple monthly average of all consumption figures collected every month for the last twelve months or simple quarterly average of consumption figures collected for several quarters in the immediate past.

Simple Average : Sum of Demands of Chosen periods Number of chosen periods .Moving Average Method Method of Simple Average is faulted on account of the fact that all past periods are given same importance whereas it is justifiable to accord higher importance to recent past periods. Whatever the period selected. Moving Average Method takes a fixed number of periods and after the elapse of each period. we must continue with same number of periods. four or twenty periods by once it decided.it may be three. data for the oldest time period is discarded and the most recent past period is included. it must be kept constant .

For example. demand for tractors is linked to the agriculture income and demand for cement. bricks etc is dependent upon value of construction contracts at any time. .Regression Analysis Past data is used to establish a functional relationship between two variables. demand for consumer goods has a relationship with disposable income of individuals and family.

. weighted given to the selected number of periods is same. Depending upon the age of the period.Weighted Moving Average In Moving Average Method. withage can be varied: Weighted Moving Average = W1 x D1 + W2D2 + ………. This has been refined to include the Weighted Moving Average which allows varying weightages for demands in old periods.+ Wn x Dn .

.PROJECT APPRAISAL Project appraisal is the analysis of cost and benefits of a proposed project with the purpose of ensuring a rational allocation of limited funds among alternative investment opportunities in view of the specified goals. Project appraisal is carried out by the financial institutions before financing any project. The rationale of project appraisal lies in the fact that the number of project to satisfy the identified needs always exceeds the availability of resources and a choice among alternative projects is to be made.

2. . 3.Project appraisal is undertaken with the following objectives: 1. To identify the expected costs and benefits of the project. To arrive at specific and predicted results of the project. To lay down the benchmarks to determine the success or failure of a project.

Project Appraisal V/S Project Evaluation Project appraisal is different from project evaluation which is basically an analysis and examination of an executed project. Project appraisal is an preinvestment decision making technique whereas the project evaluation is an post analysis of executed project. Project appraisal is done by the financing institution before the project is approved and implemented whereas project evaluation is done after the project has been implemented. . Appraisal is a conscious scrutiny which helps to design a conceptual framework to monitor and evaluate the project after its execution.

1.ASPECTS/TYPES OF PROJECT APPRAISAL FINANCIAL ANALYSIS Following are the methods of assessing firm’s profitability of capital investment proposal: Payback Period Accounting rate of return NPV IRR Profitability Index 1. 3. 2. 5. 4. .

A pay back period locate the break even point or period between outgo and income.PAY BACK PERIOD It is defined as the number of years requires for the saving of cost or net cash flow ( after tax but before depreciation) to recoup the original cost of project. In other words it represents the number of years in which the investment is expected to pay itself. Pay back period= original cost of project/Investment Annual cash flow .

4. Project is productive so soon as investment is made. . Project carries high risk. Cost is small 2.This techniques is suitable when: 1. Project is expected to complete in short period 3.

5. It is useful for the firm which is eager to get back the cash invested in the project as early as possible. 2. 3.MERITS OF PAY BACK PERIOD 1. It enable the entrepreneur to select an investment proposal which would yield quick return of funds invested. It is simple to operate and understand. 4. It is highly suitable when project has shortest gestation period. . It is suitable for high risk project.

It suits to only small project. 2. 5. It does not take into account the cash inflow after pay back period. It ignore the time value of money. It avoids the cost of capital. .Limitations 1. It fails to examine shortest period of payback. 4. 3.

This ratio relates project earning to investment.ACCOUNTING RATE OF RETURN This method is considered to be an improvement over the payback period method as it is considers the earning of a project during its entire economic life. . This techniques is based on accounting profits rather than cash inflows. This method is also known as average rate of return or return on investment. It is defined as the percentage of average profit after tax to capital employed.

The following formula is used to calculate the ARR ARR = Average profit after taxes Average Investment .

1. It is based on readily available accounting information. It considered total benefits during the entire life of the project. 2. 3.MERITS OF ARR It is simple to calculate ARR and this method is easily understandable. .

It ignore time value of money 2. 4. 3.Demerits 1. It fails to differentiate between the size of the investment required for each project. It places more emphasis on profit and not on cash flows. . It does not considered the reinvestment of profits earned over a period of time.

A project is considered to be socially viable if the benefits which accrue from the project serve the larger social purpose. The economic appraisal should cover weather it fits into national priorities and contribution to the development of society. .ECONOMIC APPRAISAL Economic appraisal is done with a view point of society and economy. Thus it is done from a wider angle not merely in financial terms. It is an assessment of the expected total cost to be incurred and benefits derived out a project that is under consideration from society point of view. Economic appraisal is also called social cost benefit analysis ( SCBA).

SCBA is also relevant to private investment which have to be approved by various government and quasi government agencies which bring to bear larger national consideration in their decision.SCBA is primarily used for evaluating public investment to be financed by the government. employment. saving and foreign exchange etc. So the acceptance or rejection of a project is depends upon total social or national benefit like impact on planning. .

Layout plan . size. location. railway. production capacities. sources of raw material. facilities like transport. latest technology to be adopted etc. Following are the determinants of technological appraisal: 1. Location 4. airway. Type of technology 2. manpower requirement.TECHNOLOGICAL ANALYSIS It refers to the review of product mix. engineering know how and technical collaboration. process of manufacturing. Scale of operation 3.

Supply of power 8. Cost estimate . Supply of water 7.5. Effluents and disposal 10. 9. Construction schedule 6. Waste. Supply of Fuel.

COMMERCIAL APPRAISAL The proposed project should be commercially viable. it is necessary to examine the demand and availability of the product in the market. insurance facilities etc. Among all the aspect are examined. requirement of raw material. selection of market place. banking. . To know the commercial viability of the project. transportation. the demand and availability of the product to be manufactured of the demand should also be examine.

skills and reliability of management. accounting etc. finance. marketing. but he is supposed to appoint adequate experience personnel in the area of production. quality of management affects the success of an industrial project to a large extent. it is not expected that an entrepreneur should have experience in a particular industry. Actually. This would also involve review of their past track record and competence.MANAGERIAL APPRAISAL It deals with the evaluation of competencies. . Generally.

monitoring. assessment. Environment Impact Assessment 2. Environment Impact Statement . research. There are two technique of environmental analysis: 1. education. a wide network of legislation is also in force. For effective environmental analysis. conservation and substantial use of resources.ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS It refers to environment planning. protection.

predict. interpret and communicate information about the impact of an action on human health and well being. Environmental impact statement is a report based on studies.Environment impact assessment is defined as a process designed to identify. disclosing the likelihood of certain environmental consequences of a proposed project. .
