Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This text covers the basic techniques and applications of engineering economy for all disciplines in the engineering profession.

The writing style emphasizes brief, crisp coverage of the principle or technique discussed in order to reduce the time taken to present and grasp the essentials.

The objective of the text is to explain and demonstrate the principles and techniques of engineering economic analysis as applied in different fields of engineering. This brief text includes coverage of multiple attribute evaluation for instructors who want to include non-economic dimensions in alternative evaluation and the discussion of risk considerations in the appendix, compared to Blanks comprehensive text, where these topics are discussed in two unique chapters.

Synopsis:

This market leaders distinguishing pedagogical characteristics include its easy to read writing style, chapter objectives, worked examples, integrated spreadsheets, Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam questions, and numerous end of chapter problems. (Spreadsheets are prominent and integrated within the chapters.)

Basics of Engineering Economy provides undergraduate students and practicing professionals with a solid preparation in the financial understanding of engineering problems and projects, as well as the techniques needed for evaluating making sound economic decisions.
