Abstract:

"Economic and Financial Analysis for Engineering and Project Management is for engineers and others who must analyze the financial and economic ramifications of producing and sustaining capital projects. Unlike other books in the field, it offers straightforward and lucid explanations of all main formulas needed to carry out financial analyses. The math is kept simple and is fully explained, making the book accessible to non-technical personnel. Numerous sample problems are provided, and can be worked on standard spreadsheet programs, as well as using interest rate tables. The book shows how to link quantitative data to management decisions and to standard reporting forms and has been designed for practicing engineers and students alike"--Publisher description.
