Definition of Terms

Engineering Economy – uses mathematical formulas to account for the time value of money and to balance current and future revenues and costs. Economics – is the science that deals with the production, allocation and use of goods and services. The two major subdivisions of economics are: a.

Macroeconomics is the study of the entire system

of economics. affect one business or parts of

Necessities and Luxuries

Necessities – are products or services that are required to support human and activities that will be purchased in somewhat the same quantity even though the prices vary considerably. Luxuries – are products and services that are desired by humans and will be purchased if money is available after the required necessities have been obtained. •

MODULE 2 Module 2 INTEREST & MONEY – TIME RELATIONSHIPS

•

Simple Interest

Interest – is the return on capital or cost of using capital. It is the amount of money paid for the use of borrowed capital or the income produced by money, which has been loaned. Simple Interest – is calculated using the principal only, ignoring any interest that had been accrued in preceding period. •

Types of Simple Interest

Module 4 DEPRECIATION

•

Definition of Terms

Depreciation – it is the decrease in the value of a fixed asset, or the value of physical property, with the passage of time. Value – is the present worth of all the future profits that are to be received through the ownership of a particular property. Market Value of a Property – is the amount, which a willing buyer will pay to a willing seller for the property where each has equal advantage and is under no compulsion to buy and sell. •

Definition of Terms

Utility or Use Value of Property – is what the property is worth to the owner as an operating unit. Fair Value – is the value which is usually determined by the disinterested third party in order to established a price that is fair to both seller and buyer. Book Value – is the worth of the property as shown in the accounting records of an enterprise. It is sometimes called as depreciated book value. Salvage or Resale Value – is the price that can be obtained from the property after it has been used. Salvage Year is the year when scrap value is equal to book value. Scrap Value or Junk Value – is the price that can be recovered if an asset is disposed as a junk. •

Purposes of Depreciation

1.

To provide for the recovery of capital

2.

To enable the cost of depreciation to be charged to the cost of producing products or services that results from the use of property. •

which has been invested in physical

property.

Causes of Depreciation

Physical Depreciation – it is due to wear and tear of the asset. Functional Depreciation – it is due to the obsolescence of the asset. Depletion – refers to the decrease in the value of a property due to the gradual extraction of its contents. Monetary Depreciation – depreciation due to changes in price level. •

Physical and Economic Life

Physical Life of a Property – is the length of time during which it is capable of performing the function for which it was designed and manufactured. Economic Life or Useful Life – is the length of time during which the property may be operated at a profit. •

Sample Problem on Double Declining Balance Method A plant bought a calciner for Php220,000 and used it for 10 years, the life span of the equipment. What is the book value of the calciner after 5 years of use? Assume a scrap value of Php20,000 for straight-line method; Php22,000 for declining balance method and Php20,000 for double-declining balance method. •

Sum-of-Years’ Digit Method

This method uses the year’s digit (in reverse order) in computing for the depreciation. •

Sample Problem on Sum of Years’ Digit Method

The generator set is to have a life of 17 years with a salvage value at the end of life at Php5,000. Determine the depreciation charge during the 13th year and the book value at the end of 13 years by:

•

(a)

Declining balance method

(b)

Double declining balance method

(c)

Sum-of-Years’ digit method

Sinking Fund Method

Sinking fund method presents the idea of annuity in computing for the depreciation. The interest rate for the worth of money is being considered so as to have the depreciable value.

•

Sample Problem on Sinking Fund Method

A broadcasting company purchased an equipment for Php53,000 and paid Php1,500 for freight and delivery charges to the job site. The equipment has a normal life of 10 years with a trade-in value of Php5,000 against the purchase of a new equipment at the end of the life. Determine the annual depreciation cost using:

•

(a)

straight line method

(b)

sinking fund method assuming interest is

6% compounded annually

Hour Output method

In this method, the functionality period and the period the machine has been used is considered. Depreciation is computed based on the wear and tear of the machine. •

Service Output method

Similar to the hour output method, this method based its computation on how much the asset has been used. •

Sample Problems on Service and Hour Output Method

1. An electric bulb bought for Php100 is guaranteed to be useful for 50 hours. A certain company uses the said bulb for 10 hours a day. If there is no scrap value for the bulb. Compute the daily depreciation and create the depreciation table throughout its economic life. 2.

(a) If the pedometer displays a value of 85 km, what is the book value of the tire? (b) How much did the owner need to travel for the tire to amount to Php80?

Module 5 BREAK-EVEN ANALYSIS

•

Definition of Terms

Break-Even Analysis – it involves estimating the level of sales necessary to operate a business on a break-even basis. Break-Even Point (BEP) – is defined as the point where sales or revenues equal total expenses. Break-Even Margin – is a ratio that shows the gross-margin factor for a break-even condition. The formula is total expenses divided by net revenues multiplied by 100 to get a percentage. •

Break-Even Graph

Break-Even Chart – shows the graph of fixed cost, variable cost and expected income from sales for different production levels. •

Ways to Lower the Break-Even Point

Lower direct costs, which will raise the gross margin. Exercise cost controls on your fixed expenses, and lower the necessary total expenses. Raise prices. •

Key Break-Even Factors

Fixed Costs – these costs remain constant (or nearly so) within the projected range of sales levels. These can include facilities costs, certain general and administrative costs, and interest and depreciation expenses. Variable Costs – these costs vary in proportion to sales levels. They can include direct material and labor costs, the variable part of manufacturing overhead, and transportation and sales commission expenses. Contribution Margin – this is equal to sales revenues less variable costs. This amount is available to offset fixed expenses and (hopefully) produce an operating profit for the business. •

Appraisal of Break-Even Analysis

Advantages of Break-Even Analysis It points out the relationship between cost, production volume and returns. Limitations of Break-Even Analysis It is best suited to the analysis of one product at a time.

It may be difficult to classify a cost as all variable or all fixed. There may be a tendency to continue to use a break-even analysis after the cost and income functions have changed. •

Sample Problems on Break Even Analysis

1. An entrepreneur at the location in the United States is planning to enter the gourmet soy-based burger market. The forecast expected unit sales of 200,000 burgers in 18 months. The variable cost for making one burger is $0.85 and the fixed cost of making burgers for 18 months will be a total of $165,000 which covers for the rent, phone bill, and insurance coverage – these items tend not to vary in amount per month over the term of one year. The best estimate of what the average consumer will pay for the soy burger is $1.95. How many burgers will he have to sell to break even? •

Sample Problems on Break Even Analysis

2. Toyota Motor Phils. Corporation Sta. Rosa Plant has a production capacity of 700 cars per month and its fixed cost is Php100,000,000 monthly. The variable cost per car is Php300,000 and each car can be sold for Php650,000. Due to cost reduction program, fixed cost will be reduced to 10% and variable cost by 20%. Determine the new and old break break-even point. •

Sample Problems on Break Even Analysis

3. A farmer wants to buy a new combine rather than hire a custom harvester. The total fixed costs for the desired combine are $21,270 per year. The variable cost (not counting the operator’s labor) are $8.75 per hour. The farmer can harvest 5 acres per hour. The custom harvester charges $16.00 per acre. How many acres must be harvested per year to breakeven?

Module 6 COMPARISON OF ALTERNATIVES •

Definition of Terms

1. Comparison of Alternatives – deals with situations in which one has more than one choice and using engineering economic principles, one needs to decide between the alternatives so as to go with the one that is most economically justified. 2.

Methods used in the Selection of Alternatives

Present Worth Method

Annual Cost/Worth Method

Equivalent Uniform Annual Cost (EUAC) Method

Rate of Return (ROR) Method

Payback (Payout) Period Method

Capitalized Cost

Benefit/Cost Ratio Analysis

•

Present Worth Method

This method involves finding the equivalent value of each alternative at the present time, identified as time 0. If only costs are involved, we can select the alternative with the smallest present worth of costs. If cost and revenues are involved, we select the alternative with the greatest present worth on net revenues. To perform present worth or annual worth analysis, an interest rate and a study period must be specified. The interest rate is usually the minimum acceptable rate of return (MARR) of the organization.

•

Present Worth Method

Present worth analysis can only be used when the alternatives have the same lives. If the alternatives have different lives, some mechanism must be used to compare them over the common study period. •

Sample Problems on Present Worth Method

1. Motors from two different manufacturers are being considered for application. Both motors are 50 HP, 460 volts, 3-phase, 60 Hz, but motor A operates at 80% efficiency whereas motor B operates at 88% efficiency. The expected used for motors are 20 years. Motor A costs Php600,000 and motor B costs Php750,000. Electrical energy cost Php3.00 per kW-hr and the motors

will be operated at 8 hours per day, 250 days per year. Assume taxes are 5% and rate of is 10%. Which motor is purchased? Also, life of both motors is 15 years. •

Two lease options are available, each with a first cost annual lease cost, and deposit-return estimates shown below. Rate of interest is 15%. •

Annual Cost (Worth) Method

The annual worth method involves finding the equivalent end-of-period value of each alternative. The periods are usually in years. If only costs are involved, we can select the alternative with the smallest equivalent uniform annual cost (EUAC) or net annual cost (NAC). If costs and revenues are involved, we can select the alternative with the greatest equivalent uniform annual benefit, or net annual worth (NAW).

If two alternatives have the same annual worth, then the one with the greatest investment is preferred. The extra investment makes exactly the required MARR. •

Annual Cost (Worth) Method

Problems that can be solved by the present worth method can also be solved by the annual worth method. An annual worth analysis is sometimes preferred over a present worth analysis because people think better in terms of annual amounts than an equivalent amount to time zero. Both methods yield the same results. Annual worth analysis is the easiest method when the alternatives have different lives. No specific study period need be specified, but the implicit assumption that the alternative are compared over the least common multiple of the lives. •

Equivalent Uniform Annual Cost (EUAC) Method

In this method, all cash flow (irregular or uniform) must be converted to an equivalent uniform annual cost, that is, a year-end amount which is the same each year. The alternative with the least EUAC is preferred. When the EUAC method is used, the EUAC of the alternatives must be calculated for one life cycle only. This method is flexible and can be used for any type of alternative selection problems. The method is a modification of the annual cost method. •

Module 7 CAPITAL FINANCING

•

Equity and Borrowed Capital

Equity Capital or Ownership Forms – are those supplied and used by the owners of an enterprise in the expectation that profit will be earned. Borrowed Funds or Capital – are those supplied by others on which a fixed rate of interest must be paid at a specified time. •

Types of Business Ownership

Individual Ownership or Sole Proprietorship – is one which is owned and run by one individual and where there is no legal distinction between the owner and the business. Partnership – is an association of two or more persons for the purpose of engaging in business for a profit. Corporation – is a fictitious being, recognized by law, that can engage in almost any type of business transaction in which a real person could occupy himself. It operates under a charter that is granted by the government. •

Advantages and Disadvantages of Sole Proprietorship

Advantages: It is easy to organize. The owner has full control of the enterprise. The owner is entitled to whatever benefits and profits that accrue from the business. It is easy to dissolve. Disadvantages: The amount of equity capital which can be accumulated is limited. The organization ceases upon the death of the owner. It is difficult to obtain borrowed capital owing to the uncertainty of the life of the organization. The liability of the owner for his debts are unlimited. •

Advantages and Disadvantages of Partnership

Advantages:

More capital may be obtained by the partners pooling their resources together. It is bound by few legal requirements as to its accounts, procedures, tax forms and other items. Dissolution of a partnership may take place at any time by mere agreement of the partners. It provides an easy method whereby two or more persons may enter into business each carrying those burdens that he can best handle. Disadvantages: The amount of capital that can be accumulated is definitely limited. The life of the partnership is determined by the life of the individual partners. When any partner dies, the partnership automatically ends. There may be serious disagreement among individual partners. Each partner is liable for debts of the other partnership. •

Advantages and Disadvantages of Corporation

Advantages: It enjoys perpetual life without regard to any change in the person of its owners, the stockholders. The stockholders of the corporation are not liable for the debts of the corporation. It is relatively easier to obtain large amounts of money for expansion due to its perpetual life. The ownership in the corporation is readily transferred. Authority is easily delegated by the hiring of the managers. Disadvantages: The activities of the corporation are limited to those stated in its charter. It is relatively complicated in formation and administration. There is greater degree of government control as compared to other types of business organization. •

Capitalization of a Corporation

The capital of a corporation is acquired through the sale of stock. There are two principal types of stock. Common Stock – represents ordinary ownership without special guarantees of return. Preferred Stock – are guaranteed a definite dividend on their stocks. In the case the corporation is dissolved, the assets must be used to satisfy the claims of the preferred stockholders before those of the common stockholders. Preferred stockholders usually have the right to vote in meetings, but not always.

•

Rights of Common Stockholders

Vote at stockholder’s meeting. Elect directors and delegates to them power to conduct the affairs of the business. Sell or dissolve the corporation. Make and amend the by-laws of the corporation. Subject to government approval, amend or change the charter or capital structure. Participate in profits. Inspect the book of the corporation. •

Financing of Bonds

Bond – is a certificate of indebtedness of a corporation usually for a period of not less than 10 years and guaranteed by mortgage on certain assets of the corporation or its subsidiaries. Bonds are issued when there is a need for more capital such as for expansion of the plant or the services rendered by the corporation. •

Classification of Bonds

Registered Bond – the name of the owner of this bond is recorded on the record books of the corporation and interest payments are sent to the owner periodically without any action. •

Classification of Bonds

According to the Security Behind the Bonds: •

Methods of Bond Retirement

The corporation may issue another set of bonds equal to the amount of bonds due for redemption. The corporation may set up a sinking fund into which periodic deposits of equal amount are made. The accumulated amount in the sinking fund is equal to the amount needed to retire the bond at the time they are due. The corporation may issue callable bonds. These bonds permit repayment of the principal before maturity. •

Module 4 DEPRECIATION

•

Definition of Terms

Depreciation – it is the decrease in the value of a fixed asset, or the value of physical property, with the passage of time. Value – is the present worth of all the future profits that are to be received through the ownership of a particular property. Market Value of a Property – is the amount, which a willing buyer will pay to a willing seller for the property where each has equal advantage and is under no compulsion to buy and sell. •

Definition of Terms

Utility or Use Value of Property – is what the property is worth to the owner as an operating unit. Fair Value – is the value which is usually determined by the disinterested third party in order to established a price that is fair to both seller and buyer. Book Value – is the worth of the property as shown in the accounting records of an enterprise. It is sometimes called as depreciated book value. Salvage or Resale Value – is the price that can be obtained from the property after it has been used. Salvage Year is the year when scrap value is equal to book value. Scrap Value or Junk Value – is the price that can be recovered if an asset is disposed as a junk. •

Purposes of Depreciation

1.

To provide for the recovery of capital

2.

To enable the cost of depreciation to be charged to the cost of producing products or services that results from the use of property. •

which has been invested in physical

property.

Causes of Depreciation

Physical Depreciation – it is due to wear and tear of the asset. Functional Depreciation – it is due to the obsolescence of the asset. Depletion – refers to the decrease in the value of a property due to the gradual extraction of its contents. Monetary Depreciation – depreciation due to changes in price level. •

Physical and Economic Life

Physical Life of a Property – is the length of time during which it is capable of performing the function for which it was designed and manufactured. Economic Life or Useful Life – is the length of time during which the property may be operated at a profit. •

Double Declining Balance Method

This is the same as declining balance method except that k is replaced by 2/n. Sample Problem on Double Declining Balance Method A plant bought a calciner for Php220,000 and used it for 10 years, the life span of the equipment. What is the book value of the calciner after 5 years of use? Assume a scrap value of Php20,000 for straight-line method; Php22,000 for declining balance method and Php20,000 for double-declining balance method. •

Sum-of-Years’ Digit Method

This method uses the year’s digit (in reverse order) in computing for the depreciation. •

Sample Problem on Sum of Years’ Digit Method

An industrial plant bought a generator set for Php90,000. Other expenses including installation amounted to Php10,000. The generator set is to have a life of 17 years with a salvage value at the end of life at Php5,000.

Sinking Fund Method

Sinking fund method presents the idea of annuity in computing for the depreciation. The interest rate for the worth of money is being considered so as to have the depreciable value.

•

Sample Problem on Sinking Fund Method

A broadcasting company purchased an equipment for Php53,000 and paid Php1,500 for freight and delivery charges to the job site. The equipment has a normal life of 10 years with a trade-in value of Php5,000 against the purchase of a new equipment at the end of the life. Determine the annual depreciation cost using:

•

(a)

straight line method

(b)

sinking fund method assuming interest is

6% compounded annually

Hour Output method

In this method, the functionality period and the period the machine has been used is considered. Depreciation is computed based on the wear and tear of the machine. •

Service Output method

Similar to the hour output method, this method based its computation on how much the asset has been used. •

Sample Problems on Service and Hour Output Method

1. An electric bulb bought for Php100 is guaranteed to be useful for 50 hours. A certain company uses the said bulb for 10 hours a day. If there is no scrap value for the bulb. Compute the daily depreciation and create the depreciation table throughout its economic life. 2. A tire bought for Php1,000 is expected to be useful in traveling 100 km after which it can be sold as scrap for Php50. (a) If the pedometer displays a value of 85 km, what is the book value of the tire? (b) How much did the owner need to travel for the tire to amount to Php80?

Module 5 BREAK-EVEN ANALYSIS

•

Definition of Terms

Break-Even Analysis – it involves estimating the level of sales necessary to operate a business on a break-even basis. Break-Even Point (BEP) – is defined as the point where sales or revenues equal total expenses. Break-Even Margin – is a ratio that shows the gross-margin factor for a break-even condition. The formula is total expenses divided by net revenues multiplied by 100 to get a percentage. •

Break-Even Graph

Break-Even Chart – shows the graph of fixed cost, variable cost and expected income from sales for different production levels. •

Ways to Lower the Break-Even Point

Lower direct costs, which will raise the gross margin. Exercise cost controls on your fixed expenses, and lower the necessary total expenses. Raise prices. •

Key Break-Even Factors

Fixed Costs – these costs remain constant (or nearly so) within the projected range of sales levels. These can include facilities costs, certain general and administrative costs, and interest and depreciation expenses. Variable Costs – these costs vary in proportion to sales levels. They can include direct material and labor costs, the variable part of manufacturing overhead, and transportation and sales commission expenses. Contribution Margin – this is equal to sales revenues less variable costs. This amount is available to offset fixed expenses and (hopefully) produce an operating profit for the business. •

Appraisal of Break-Even Analysis

Advantages of Break-Even Analysis It points out the relationship between cost, production volume and returns. Limitations of Break-Even Analysis It is best suited to the analysis of one product at a time.

It may be difficult to classify a cost as all variable or all fixed. There may be a tendency to continue to use a break-even analysis after the cost and income functions have changed. •

Sample Problems on Break Even Analysis

1. An entrepreneur at the location in the United States is planning to enter the gourmet soy-based burger market. The forecast expected unit sales of 200,000 burgers in 18 months. The variable cost for making one burger is $0.85 and the fixed cost of making burgers for 18 months will be a total of $165,000 which covers for the rent, phone bill, and insurance coverage – these items tend not to vary in amount per month over the term of one year. The best estimate of what the average consumer will pay for the soy burger is $1.95. How many burgers will he have to sell to break even? •

Sample Problems on Break Even Analysis

2. Toyota Motor Phils. Corporation Sta. Rosa Plant has a production capacity of 700 cars per month and its fixed cost is Php100,000,000 monthly. The variable cost per car is Php300,000 and each car can be sold for Php650,000. Due to cost reduction program, fixed cost will be reduced to 10% and variable cost by 20%. Determine the new and old break break-even point. •

Sample Problems on Break Even Analysis

3. A farmer wants to buy a new combine rather than hire a custom harvester. The total fixed costs for the desired combine are $21,270 per year. The variable cost (not counting the operator’s labor) are $8.75 per hour. The farmer can harvest 5 acres per hour. The custom harvester charges $16.00 per acre. How many acres must be harvested per year to breakeven?

Module 6 COMPARISON OF ALTERNATIVES •

Definition of Terms

1. Comparison of Alternatives – deals with situations in which one has more than one choice and using engineering economic principles, one needs to decide between the alternatives so as to go with the one that is most economically justified. 2.

Methods used in the Selection of Alternatives

Present Worth Method

Annual Cost/Worth Method

Equivalent Uniform Annual Cost (EUAC) Method

Rate of Return (ROR) Method

Payback (Payout) Period Method

Capitalized Cost

Benefit/Cost Ratio Analysis

•

Present Worth Method

This method involves finding the equivalent value of each alternative at the present time, identified as time 0. If only costs are involved, we can select the alternative with the smallest present worth of costs. If cost and revenues are involved, we select the alternative with the greatest present worth on net revenues. To perform present worth or annual worth analysis, an interest rate and a study period must be specified. The interest rate is usually the minimum acceptable rate of return (MARR) of the organization.

•

Present Worth Method

Present worth analysis can only be used when the alternatives have the same lives. If the alternatives have different lives, some mechanism must be used to compare them over the common study period. •

Sample Problems on Present Worth Method

1. Motors from two different manufacturers are being considered for application. Both motors are 50 HP, 460 volts, 3-phase, 60 Hz, but motor A operates at 80% efficiency whereas motor B operates at 88% efficiency. The expected used for motors are 20 years. Motor A costs Php600,000 and motor B costs Php750,000. Electrical energy cost Php3.00 per kW-hr and the motors

will be operated at 8 hours per day, 250 days per year. Assume taxes are 5% and rate of is 10%. Which motor is purchased? Also, life of both motors is 15 years. •

Annual Cost (Worth) Method

The annual worth method involves finding the equivalent end-of-period value of each alternative. The periods are usually in years. If only costs are involved, we can select the alternative with the smallest equivalent uniform annual cost (EUAC) or net annual cost (NAC). If costs and revenues are involved, we can select the alternative with the greatest equivalent uniform annual benefit, or net annual worth (NAW).

If two alternatives have the same annual worth, then the one with the greatest investment is preferred. The extra investment makes exactly the required MARR. •

Annual Cost (Worth) Method

Problems that can be solved by the present worth method can also be solved by the annual worth method. An annual worth analysis is sometimes preferred over a present worth analysis because people think better in terms of annual amounts than an equivalent amount to time zero. Both methods yield the same results. Annual worth analysis is the easiest method when the alternatives have different lives. No specific study period need be specified, but the implicit assumption that the alternative are compared over the least common multiple of the lives. •

Equivalent Uniform Annual Cost (EUAC) Method

In this method, all cash flow (irregular or uniform) must be converted to an equivalent uniform annual cost, that is, a year-end amount which is the same each year. The alternative with the least EUAC is preferred. When the EUAC method is used, the EUAC of the alternatives must be calculated for one life cycle only. This method is flexible and can be used for any type of alternative selection problems. The method is a modification of the annual cost method. •
