A practical manual presenting the techniques most commonly recommended and used for the analysis of the profitability of capital investments. The volume is divided into four sections: concepts and inputs; discounted cash flow calculations; reporting results; and case study. A series of appendices provide background material, including a glossary of terms, samples of typical evaluation calculations and reports, and a more detailed discussion of some topics such as a firm's cost of capital, and the economic theory of inflation. Primarily for people in various areas of cost engineering, including project managers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
