Six Ways to Perform Economic Evaluations of Projects
This online engineering PDH course discusses the money issues. The objective is that while engineers find it necessary to learn the basic accounting and business principles to communicate with accountants; few accountants are willing to learn the engineering details. The basic cost evaluation techniques presented in the course shall help engineers to "think like MBAs and act like engineers".
Installed costs and capital offsets are important economic parameters for evaluation of proposed investment. The concept of money having a time value is fundamental to understanding any economic or financial analysis. This course provides basic fundamentals of cost evaluating that could be applied to new, retrofitting, expansion and modification projects.
