scenario at you:
Engineering Economics: Q2
The chief financial officer of Widget Inc.
expects a 10% annual return on
investments for all capital projects. What
is the maximum cost that will be approved
from a project that is expected to save
\$8,000 per year over 10 years? Assume
the project will be fully depreciated in the
10 years.

Soon you face this problem:
Engineering Economics: Q3
The financial policy of Acme requires that
capital investments must have an annual
return of 12%. An engineering solution to
a safety problem will cost \$250,000 for the
initial installation, and it will cost \$12,000
annually to maintain for 15 years. What is
the required annual savings from this
project in order for it to be approved?

executive. If a balloon payment of
\$10,000,000 is due in 10 years, what
amount would management have to
deposit monthly into a savings account
(paying interest of 6% per year) to
accumulate adequate funds to pay the
note?
