MSE 304 – Engineering Economy Quiz 3 Show equations used and all calculations. 1. Proposals from three shipping freighter companies are listed below. Determine which company proposal has the lowest cost on the basis of an annual worth comparison at 12% per year. DSX FDX UPS First cost -\$110,000 -\$800,000 0 Annual cost, /year -\$95,000 -\$60,000 -\$190,000 Salvage value \$15,000 \$250,000 0 Life, years 3 6 2 Answer: A DSX = -110,000 (A/P , 12%, 3) – 95,000 + 15,000 (A/F, 12%, 3) = -110,000 (0.41635) – 95,000 + 15,000 (0.29635) = -45,798.50 – 95,000 + 4445.25 A DSX = -136,353.25 A FDX = -800,000 (A/P , 12%, 6) – 60,000 + 250,000 (A/F, 12%, 6) = -800,000 (0.24323) – 60,000 + 250,000 (0.12323) = -194,584 – 60,000 + 30,807.50 A FDX = -223,776.50 A UPS = -190,000 DSX has the lowest cost.
