Thoroughly revised in this second edition, Engineering Economy: Applying Theory to Practice combines real-world problems minicases, and examples with a solid theoretical foundation in engineering economy. This innovative book covers all the standard topics included in the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam. It clearly illustrates concepts and methods-such as cost estimating, sensitivity analysis, probability, and multiple objectives-needed for successful application of engineering economy in industry practice. In addition, fully integrated ExcelRG spreadsheets throughout the text function as indispensable analytical tools for problem-solving and understanding. Engineering Economy: Applying Theory to Practice, 2/e, is a comprehensive introductory text suitable for upper-division undergraduate courses, graduate courses, or as a professional reference.
