# Replacement Analysis

## If a company would like to replace a certain

machine. They have to analyze the following
options:
ENGR 301 Lecture 17 1. Repair the existing machine and extend its
service life. “Defender”
2. Replace the existing machine with a new one.

1. Cash flow approach
– Applied for replacement alternatives with equal
Usually newer and incorporate new technology analysis periods.
– Comparison based on PE or AE.
2. Opportunity cost approach.
– Considering the current market value of the
defender as a cash out flow. (or investment
required to keep the defender)

## Economic Service Life

• When to replace the defender?
If the defender will be used for one more year after its economical
life, the cost at the end of year 3 should be calculated
Market value at end of year 2 = 3000
Operating cost at end of year 3 = 5000
Salvage value = 2000
FE = 3000 x 1.15 + 5000 – 2000 = \$6450 < AEC of the challenger
= \$5826
The decision is to replace the defender at the end of its economical
life, which is = 2 years.
