Chapter 1
Foundations of Engineering Economy
1.1 The four elements are cash flows, time of occurrence of cash flows, interest rates, and
measure of economic worth.
1.2 (a) Capital funds are money used to finance projects. It is usually limited in the amount
of money available.
(b) Sensitivity analysis is a procedure that involves changing various estimates to see if/how
they affect the economic decision.
1.3 Any of the following are measures of worth: present worth, future worth, annual worth, rate
of return, benefit/cost ratio, capitalized cost, payback period, economic value added.
1.4 First cost: economic; leadership: non-economic; taxes: economic; salvage value: economic;
morale: non-economic; dependability: non-economic; inflation: economic; profit: economic;
acceptance: non-economic; ethics: non-economic; interest rate: economic.
1.5 Many sections could be identified. Some are: I.b; II.2.a and b; III.9.a and b.
1.6 Example actions are:
• Try to talk them out of doing it now, explaining it is stealing

• Pay for all the drinks himself
• Walk away and not associate with them again
1.7 This is structured to be a discussion question; many responses are acceptable. It is an
ethical question, but also a guilt-related situation. He can justify the result as an accident; he
can feel justified by the legal fault and punishment he receives; he can get angry because it
WAS an accident; he can become tormented over time due to the stress caused by accidently
causing a child’s death.
1.8 This is structured to be a discussion question; many responses are acceptable. Responses
can vary from the ethical (stating the truth and accepting the consequences) to unethical
(continuing to deceive himself and the instructor and devise some on-the-spot excuse).
Lessons can be learned from the experience. A few of them are:
• Think before he cheats again.
• Think about the longer-term consequences of unethical decisions.
• Face ethical-dilemma situations honestly and make better decisions in real time.
