Book Description

This book emphasizes the concepts and techniques of analysis that prove useful in evaluating the economic feasibility of engineering systems, projects, and services for decision purposes. It also familiarizes the engineer with operations and operational feasibility necessary to considerations of the design process. Chapter topics cover economic and cost concepts; interest formula; calculations of economic equivalence; equivalence involving inflation; bases for comparison and decision-making among alternatives; evaluating production operations and replacement alternatives; accounting; income taxes in economic analysis; decisions under risk and uncertainty and involving multiple criteria; and estimating economic elements. For a basic understanding of mathematical modeling in complex operational systems, essential to a growing number of engineers today.

1Bad book
By zscruz
This review is not about the content of the book, but I will say that I agree with the other reviews stating that this book is horrible. If you need this book for a course, I hope you have a good professor. I rented this book from Amazon and after using it for 2 weeks the binding broke, and now I have to pay full price for this horrible book. The content of this book is absolutely terrible and physically this book is constructed poorly. I will not be buying anymore books off of Amazon.

1What a book
By Ditto Mobil
Not sure what the authors were thinking even my professor says the questions in the book are poorly worded but then again I am not sure why we are using this god forsaken book :( Avoid if you can

2The book is pretty much useless
By scott4
Make sure you get a good teacher, because the book is pretty much useless. I have a good teacher, so I am fine, but I couldn't imagine it being the other way around. It basically has formulas in it with no explanations.
