This book emphasizes the concepts and techniques of analysis that prove useful in evaluating the economic feasibility of engineering systems, projects, and services for decision purposes. It also familiarizes the engineer with operations and operational feasibility necessary to considerations of the design process. Chapter topics cover economic and cost concepts; interest formula; calculations of economic equivalence; equivalence involving inflation; bases for comparison and decision-making among alternatives; evaluating production operations and replacement alternatives; accounting; income taxes in economic analysis; decisions under risk and uncertainty and involving multiple criteria; and estimating economic elements. For a basic understanding of mathematical modeling in complex operational systems, essential to a growing number of engineers today.

Designed as a textbook for undergraduate students in various engineering disciplines—Mechanical, Civil, Industrial Engineering, Electronics Engineer-ing and Computer Science—and for postgraduate students in Industrial Engineering and Water Resource Management, this comprehensive and well-organized book, now in its Second Edition, shows how complex economic decisions can be made from a number of given alternatives. It provides the managers not only a sound basis but also a clear-cut approach to making decisions. These decisions will ultimately result in minimizing costs and/or maximizing benefits. What is more, the book adequately illustrates the concepts with numerical problems and Indian cases. While retaining all the chapters of the previous edition, the book adds a number of topics to make it more comprehensive and more student friendly. What’s New to This Edition • Discusses different types of costs such as average cost, recurring cost, and life cycle cost. • Deals with different types of cost estimating models, index numbers and capital allowance. • Covers the basics of nondeterministic decision making. • Describes the meaning of cash flows with probability distributions and decision making, and selection of alternatives using simulation. • Discusses the basic concepts of Accounting. This book, which is profusely illustrated with worked-out examples and a number of diagrams and tables, should prove extremely useful not only as a text but also as a reference for those offering courses in such areas as Project Management, Production Management, and Financial Management.

Providing a sound understanding of the principles, basic concepts, and methodology of engineering economy, this book is built upon the rich and time-tested teaching materials of earlier editions - extensively revised and updated to reflect current trends and issues, with an emphasis on the economics of engineering design throughout. It provides a complete and up-to-date of this important field, not only helping students to develop proficiency with the methods used in engineering economy analysis and the process for making rational decisions in situations likely to be encountered in professional practice, but also including insightful and comprehensive case studies to demonstrate the integrated application of the principles, basic concepts, and methodologies used by engineers in typical real-world situations. It thoroughly discusses the field's most significant topics, such as cost estimating, design economics, and electronic spreadsheets.
