Question

You are evaluating 2 machines the investment of 2 mutually exclusive machines. Each machine has an eight year life and you plan to keep whichever machine you pick for the full 8 years. The firm's MARR is 10%. The cash flows for each machine are summarized in the following table:

A | B | |

Initial Cost | $4000 | $3000 |

Annual Benefit | $800 | $600 |

Annual Cost | $100 | $50 |

Salvage Value | $1500 | $1000 |

Each investment has an IRR greater than the 10% MARR. Using Incremental Replacement Analysis, which investment should be chosen and why (show calculations in answer or in written submission)?

Answer #1

t = 8 yrs

MARR = 10%

Base alternative will be B, as it has lower cost

Incremental initial cost (A-B) = 4000 - 3000 = 1000

Incremental annual cost (A-B) = 100 - 50 = 50

Incremental annual benefit (A-B) = 800 - 600 = 200

Incremental salvage value (A-B) = 1500 - 1000 = 500

Let incremental salvage value be i%, then

(200-50)*(P/A,i%,8) + 500*(P/F,i%,8) = 1000

150*(P/A,i%,8) + 500*(P/F,i%,8) = 1000

Dividing by 50

3*(P/A,i%,8) + 10*(P/F,i%,8) = 20

using trail and error method

When i = 10%, value of 3*(P/A,i%,8) + 10*(P/F,i%,8) = 3*5.334926 + 10*0.466507 = 20.669852

When i = 11%, value of 3*(P/A,i%,8) + 10*(P/F,i%,8) = 3*5.146123 + 10*0.433926 = 19.777633

using interpolation

i = 10% + (20.669852-20)/(20.669852-19.777633)*(11%-10%)

i = 10% + 0.75% = **10.75% (Approx)**

**As incremental IRR > MARR, option A should be
selected**

Two mutually exclusive diesel generators are considered for
purchase by a power generation company. Information relevant to
compare the alternatives is summarized below:
Generator A
Generator B
Capital investment
$100,000
$80,000
Market value at the end of service life
$35,000
$10,000
Annual fuel and maintenance expenses
$3,000
$5,000
Service life
10 years
10 years
Use the IRR method to determine the better machine to be
purchased. The MARR is 10% per year.

Compare two competing, mutually exclusive new machines that have
only cost data given and tell which of the following statements is
true regarding the present worth of the incremental investment at
your investment interest rate.
a.) If it is greater than zero, we chose the alternative with
the largest initial investment expense.
b.) The internal rate of return will always be equal to the
investment rate of return.
c.) Neither machine is chosen if there is only cost data and...

The Perez Company has the opportunity to invest in one of two
mutually exclusive machines that will produce a product it will
need for the foreseeable future. Machine A costs $10 million but
realizes after-tax inflows of $4 million per year for 4 years.
After 4 years, the machine must be replaced. Machine B costs $15
million and realizes after-tax inflows of $3.5 million per year for
8 years, after which it must be replaced. Assume that machine
prices are...
