This unified examination of economic analysis principles from a cash flow viewpoint, provides a systematic, 7-step approach for performing a comparison of investment alternatives. It offers comprehensive coverage of cost concepts, inflation, ACRS and modern methods of depreciation, income taxes, economic analysis. It features more current economy examples, a new chapter on reality issues, and new material on non-manufacturing examples.
This text is an unbound, binder-ready edition. Engineers need to "sell" engineering projects and products to managers, executives, and customers economically as well as technologically, environmentally, aesthetically, and so on. Principles of Engineering Economic Analysis, 6e teaches engineers to properly and methodically evaluate their work on an economic basis, and to convey it effectively to those who have the power to say "yea" or "nay." The 6th edition is updated and expanded to be comprehensive and flexible - it includes all standard topics plus stronger coverage of more advanced analysis techniques than other books(e.g., risk analysis, sensitivity analysis, cost estimating, public sector economics, capital budgeting, etc.), with the most thorough integration and guidance for spreadsheet use. The text provides a unified treatment of economic analysis principles and techniques from a cash flow perspective, a proven classroom approach that is very successful in practice. Chapter-opening stories about well-known companies, engineering and personal finance examples throughout the text, and external web resources help motivate students. FE-Like problems at the end of each chapter give students practice with the kinds of problems they'll encounter on the FE exam. The 6th edition provides students and instructors the latest tax information, and up-to-date company and industry information in the chapter opening stories, reflecting changes resulting from the recent tumult in the economy, so that students can work with the most current and relevant information. The 6th edition also highlights opportunities for instructors and students to benefit from the teaching and learning resources available in the WileyPLUS course (instructors may choose to adopt this text with WileyPLUS), including: Algorithmic homework problems that provide: instant feedback to students, link-to-text where students may review if they're having trouble, and Tutorial and Video Solution help. All Tutorial help is available at the instructor's discretion. 96 Worked Problem Videos, demonstrating how to solve problems, both algebraically and with Excel.
The engineer's guide to economical decision-making Engineering economics is an important subject for both aspiring and practicing engineers. As global competition increases, engineers are increasingly asked to analyze and monitor their processes and products, not only to ascertain their level of quality but their cost-effectiveness as well. It is imperative to know the scientific and engineering principles of design work and decision-making in a world where technology is constantly evolving. Kleinfeld's Engineering Economics: Analysis for Evaluation of Alternatives offers students, professors, and professionals guidance for making smart, economical decisions when it comes to design and manufacturing.
This text covers the basic techniques and applications of engineering economy for all disciplines in the engineering profession. The writing style emphasizes brief, crisp coverage of the principle or technique discussed in order to reduce the time taken to present and grasp the essentials. The objective of the text is to explain and demonstrate the principles and techniques of engineering economic analysis as applied in different fields of engineering. This brief text includes coverage of multiple attribute evaluation for instructors who want to include non-economic dimensions in alternative evaluation and the discussion of risk considerations in the appendix, compared to Blanks comprehensive text, where these topics are discussed in two unique chapters.
Essentials of Engineering Economic Analysis, Second Edition, includes the first twelve chapters of the best-selling textbook Engineering Economic Analysis, Eighth Edition, (0-19-515152-6) by Donald G. Newnan, Jerome P. Lavelle, and Ted G. Eschenbach. This compact version introduces the fundamental concepts of engineering economics and covers essential time value of money principles for engineering projects. It isolates the problems and decisions engineers commonly face and examines the necessary tools for analyzing and solving those problems. Revised in 2001, the second edition focuses on the use of spreadsheets, teaching students to use the enormous capabilities of modern software. The majority of the chapters conclude with sections designed to help students create spreadsheets based on the material covered in each chapter. (The book's organization allows omission of spreadsheet instruction without loss of continuity.) This emphasis on spreadsheet computations provides excellent preparation for real-life engineering economic analysis problems.
