Basic Idea: When the alternatives have different useful lives, we need to make some modifications to compare the alternatives over the same period of time , which is needed for a fair comparison. IE 343 Fall 2011 Study period ≠ useful life (of at least one alternative) 4

Case 1: Let’s assume that we can repeat the same cash flow of each alternative during its initial useful life span in its succeeding life spans. (Repeatability assumption) This “ repeatability ” assumption is useful for situations where – the study period is very long (can be assumed infinity) – the study period is equal to a common multiple of the alternatives’ lives. IE 343 Fall 2011 Case 1:Repeatability Assumption 6

MARR=10%. Assume Repeatability holds: This can be done by identical replacements of alternatives at the end of their useful life spans. IE 343 Fall 2011 Example 6.7 – Case 1:Repeatability Assumption A B Investment 5,250 7,500 Annual revenues 1,882.5 2,220 Useful life(years) 4 6 7

Based on this assumption, we can use a study period of 12 years (the least common multiple (LCM) of 4 and 6) where Alternative A repeats itself 3 times and Alternative B repeats itself 2 times during the entire period . IE 343 Fall 2011 Example 6.7 – Case 1 – Solution A A A B B 0 4 6 8 12 8

Let’s use the PW method to find the best alternative: (study period=12 years) PW(10%) A = -5,250- 5,250[(P/F,10%,4)+(P/F,10%,8)]+1,882.5(P/A,10%,12) = $1,542.
