IE2140 (2009) soln-7-1 IE 2140 Engineering Economy Solutions to Tutorial #7 1. (Modified Problem 11-5) ( a ) MARR = 18%. AW 1 (18%) = – 5,000 [ A / P , 18%, 8] + 1,800 – 400 + 800 [ A / F ,18%,8] = – 5,000 (0.245244 ) + 1,400 + 800 (0.065244) = $ 225.97 AW 2 (18%) = – 6,500 [ A / P , 18%, 10] + 2,075 – 500 + 1,200 [ A / F , 18%, 10] = – 6,500 (0.222515) + 1,575 + 1,200 (0.042515) = $ 179.67 Base case decision: Select Alternative 1 . To determine the capital investment of Alternative 2 ( I 2 ) so that the initial decision would be reverse, let AW 1 (18%) = AW 2 (18%) 225.97 = – I 2 (0.222515) + 1,575 + 1,200 (0.042515) I 2 = $ 6,292 Hence the capital investment of Alternative 2 would have to be $6,292 or lesser for the initial decision to be reversed.

IE2140 (2009) soln-7-2 ( b ) Set AW 1 (18%) = AW 2 (18%) and solve for N . – 5,000 [ A / P , 18%, N 1 ] + 1,400 + 800 [ A / F , 18%, N 1 ] = 179.67 – 5,000 [ A / P , 18%, N 1 ] + $1,220.33 + 800 [ A / F , 18%, N 1 ] = 0 By trial and error, or using Goal Seek in Excel, N 1 = 7.32 years.
