This unique book provides the basis for making integrated financial decisions in contemporary organizations. It is an essential guide to day-to-day cost improvement activities that reveals the interrelationship among engineering economy, manufacturing costs, cost improvements, and related topics from the perspective of technical and operating personnel rather than a financial viewpoint. The book provides a basis for financial decision-making grounded in an understanding of organizational financial statements, accounting concepts, cash flow analysis, and related financial concepts. It presents the current techniques that are used in making contemporary financial decisions by teams of engineers, managers, technicians, operating, and financial personnel as well as practical applications of these techniques. This book is a valuable resource and reference for engineers, technical professionals, and business managers who are part of cross-functional teams responsible for the economic analysis of projects, equipment and facilities investment, product and process cost improvements, or other team financial decisions in the contemporary organization.
