Excel Self-Assessment Exercise -- ESD 70 Exercise prepared by: Prof. Richard de Neufville and Tao Wang. Last updated: August 28, 2008 Problem inspired by Copeland, T. (2002) "The Growth Ladder," Harvard Instructions: Read and think about the exercise only, there is no need to complete it. If you are sufficiently proficient in Excel, you should be able to complete this exercise in a morning. If you feel that it is beyond you or would take a long time, you need to gain the proficiency needed for ESD 71 – Engineering Systems Analysis for Design. You should follow ESD 70 – either for credit or as a listener. Exercise: Big or small? A manufacturer is considering two investment programs to supply a new PC. Market research anticipates rapid market growth: sales are expected to be 300, 000 the first year, 600,000 the second, and 900,000 the third. However, the company recognizes that actual sales may differ by plus or minus 50%.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
