In addition, the machine needs to be serviced at the end of year 6 at a cost of \$8,000. At the end of 10 years, the machine has a salvage value of \$5,000. The firm’s MARR is 10% a year. a) Determine the discounted payback period for this investment. 8 points Therefore, θ ’ = 4 years b) If ε = 5%, what is your recommendation for this project using the ERR method? 10 points PW of expenses = 36,000 + 8,000 (P/F, 5%, 6) + 4,000 (P/A, 5%, 10) FW of revenues = 16,000 (F/A, 5%, 10) + 5,000 Thus, [36,000 + 8,000 (P/F, 5%, 6) + 4,000 (P/A, 5%, 10)] (F/P, i ’, 10) = 16,000 (F/A, 5%, 10) + 5,000 (1+ i ’) 10 = 2.831 Hence, i 11% Since i ’ > MARR, accept the project.
