When analyzing any technical or engineering project as a prospective investment, it’s vital to make an accurate estimate of operating expenses and return on investment. This course covers the steps the best engineers follow to make sound economic evaluations of projects, designs and alternatives.
In two days, you’ll gain a practical framework for evaluating technical and engineering projects and to gain a better understanding of the evaluations others make. You’ll learn how to accurately estimate operating expenses and calculate return on investment. You’ll examine how to conduct a cash flow analysis of financial, operating and investment activities including how to conduct a discounted cash flow (DCF) analysis to evaluate the attractiveness of an investment; how to use net present value (NPV) and the internal rate of return (IRR) to appraise long-term projects. By the end of the course, you’ll have the skills and tools required to guide and positively contribute to financial and strategic decision-making within your organization.
