Annual O&M costs for the defender have been increasing by $5,000 a year since its acquisition. Next year, the O&M costs will total $120,000. A new SMP machine ( challenger ) being considered as a replacement for the defender has a current market value of $50,000. The new SMP machine will cost $500,000 and have annual O&M costs of $10,000 the first year, increasing by $5,000 a year. Based on the remaining useful life of the defender , a 5-year planning horizon is used. After 5 years, the challenger will have a market value of $200,000. With a BTMARR of 16.67%, should the defender be replaced?

Principles of Engineering Economic Analysis , 5th edition Solution to Example 11.1 The cash flows for the defender (alternative 1) and challenger (alternative 2) are shown below. Based on the following incremental EUAC ( equivalent uniform annual cash* ) analysis, it is recommended that the defender continue to be used until a more attractive challenger is identified. EUAC 2-1 (16.67%) = $450,000( A|P 16.67%,5) - $200,000( A|F 16.67%,5) - $110,000 = $890.00 * EUAC > $0 means AW < $0 Dear Students please note the correction to what I said during the class. The 200000 market value was actually used in the solution. Please note this correction.

Since EUAC 2-1 (16.67%) > $0, Do Not Replace!

Principles of Engineering Economic Analysis , 5th edition A filter press was purchased 3 yrs ago for $30,000. O&M costs are expected to be $7,000 next year if the filter press is kept; they will increase by $1,000 per year, thereafter. In 5 yrs, the filter press has a salvage value of $2,000. Its book value is $21,000. A new filter press can be purchased for $36,000. If purchased, the old filter press can be sold for $9,000. O&M costs will follow a $1,000 gradient series, with no cost in the first year. At the end of 5 yrs, the new press will have a $12,000 salvage value. With a 15% MARR , what should be done? Example 11.2

Principles of Engineering Economic Analysis , 5th edition Solution to Example 11.2 Alternative 1: keep the old press AW(15%) = -$7,000 - $1,000(A|G 15%,5) + $2,000(A|F 15%,5) AW(15%) = -$7,000 - $1,000(1.72281) + $2,000(0.14832) AW(15%) = -$8,426.17/yr Alternative 2: replace old press AW(15%) = -$27,000(A|P 15%,5) - $1,000(A|G 15%,5) + $12,000(A|F 15%,5) AW(15%) = -$27,000(0.29832) - $1,000(1.72281) + $12,000(0.14832) AW(15%) = -$7,997.61/yr Replace the filter press! AW 2-1 (15%) = $428.56

Principles of Engineering Economic Analysis , 5th edition Example 11.3 In the previous example, what should be done if a 10-yr planning horizon is used, a replacement press will cost $31,000 in 5 yrs and have a salvage value of $15,000 after 5 yrs use, and O&M costs for the new press will be a $1,000 gradient series?

    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.
