|Subject Overview:||This subject analyses the profitability of complex technological projects so that different alternative investment opportunities can be compared within a legislative, societal, environmental, financial and economic framework as part of a business plan. It introduces accounting concepts, and explains the estimation of capital and manufacturing costs for engineering projects, where insufficient data are available. The effects of depreciation, inflation, taxation, maintenance scheduling and uncertainty are considered in discounted cash flow calculations in order to evaluate equipment alternatives, including retrofitting of facilities. Various profitability criteria are established for project evaluation and decision-making on risk /return considerations.|
