Annual Worth Analysis (AWA)

## • AW value is equivalent to the PW and FW values at the

MARR for n years.

ME-291 Engineering
AW = PW(A/P, i, n)=FW(A/F, i, n)
• When all cash flow estimates are converted to an AW
value, this value applies for every year of the life-cycle,

Economy
and for each additional life cycle.
• Advantage: The AW value has to be calculated for only
one life cycle. Therefore, it is not necessary to use LCM
of lives, as it is for PW or FW analysis.
• Some Applications:
• Asset replacement & retention (maintenance) time
studies to minimize annual costs.
• Break even studies and make or buy studies etc.

Three fundamental assumptions of
the AW method

## When alternatives being compared have different lives,

the AW method makes the assumptions that:

ME-291 Engineering
• The services provided are needed for the indefinite
future (forever).
• The selected alternative will be repeated for

Economy
succeeding life cycles in exactly the same manner as
for the first life cycle.
• All cash flows will have the same estimated values in
every life cycle.

Example 6.1

## • Consider a location A, which has a 6-year life cycle. The

diagram shows cash flows for all three life cycles (first cost

ME-291 Engineering
\$15,000; annual cost \$3500; deposit return \$1000).
Demonstrate the equivalence at interest rate=15% of PW
over the three life cycles and AW over one cycle. If the 18
years LCM is considered, the PW calculated is \$ -45,036.

Example 6.1 (Contd…)

## • AW = -15, 000(A/P, 15%, 6) + 1000(A/F,

15%, 6) – 3500 = \$ -7349

ME-291 Engineering
• Using PW for 18 years:
• AW = -45, 036(A/P, 15%, 18) = \$ -7349

Economy
• Using FW and AW equivalence relation:
• FW = PW(F/P, 15%, 18) = -45, 036(12.3755)
• FW = \$ -557, 343
• AW = -557, 343(A/F, 15%, 18) = \$ -7351

Capital Recovery and AW

## An alternative should have the following cash flow estimates:

– Initial investment P
– Salvage value S

ME-291 Engineering
– Annual amount A

## The AW is comprised of two components: Capital recovery of

Economy
the initial investment P at a stated interest rate (usually the
MARR) and the equivalent annual amount A. The symbol
CR is used for the capital recovery component.

AW = - CR – A
- ive sign here represents costs

## CR is the equivalent annual cost of owning the asset plus return

on initial investment.

CR = - [ P ( A / P , i , n ) – S ( A / F , i , n ) ]

Example 6.2 (Contd…)

## • CR = -{[8.0 + 5.0(P/F, 12%, 1)](A/P, 12%, 8)

– 0.5(A/F, 12%, 8)}

ME-291 Engineering
• CR = \$ -2.47 million
• It means that every year of 8 years, the

Economy
equivalent total revenue from the tracker
must be at \$ -2.47 million just to recover the
initial present worth investment plus the
required return of 12%. This does not include
AOC of \$ 0.9 million.
• AW = -2.47 – 0.9 = \$ -3.37 million per year

Evaluating alternatives by Annual
Worth Analysis

## • The rules are the same as that of PW

• For mutually exclusive alternatives, calculate AW at

ME-291 Engineering
the MARR.
– One alternative: AW≥0, MARR is met or exceeded

Economy
– Two or more alternatives: choose the lowest cost
or highest income (numerically largest) AW value.

Example 6.3 (Contd..)

## • The CR and AW answer the first two questions (a

and b)

ME-291 Engineering
• CR = 5(4600)(A/P, 10%, 5) – 5(300)(A/F, 10%, 5) =
\$ 5822
• \$ 1200 < CR so project is not viable financially.

Economy

Example 6.3 (Contd..)

## • AW = -5822 + 550 – 50(A/G, 10%, 5)

• AW = \$ -5362

ME-291 Engineering
• This shows once again that alternative is
clearly not financially viable at MARR =

Economy
10%
• Note that estimated \$ 1200 income per year
has reduced the required annual amount
from \$ 5822 to \$ 5362
• To do Computer analysis, use NPV and PMT
functions………..see the solution in book.
• NPV is used to determine P and PMT finds
the equivalent A value.

AW of a Permanent Investment

## • This section discusses the annual worth equivalent of

the Capitalized Cost.

ME-291 Engineering
• A=Pi
• Effect same as Capitalized cost.

Economy
• For the evaluation of public sector projects, such as
flood control, irrigation canals, bridges, and other
large scale projects.
• Cash flows recurring at regular or irregular intervals
are handled exactly as in conventional AW
computations; they are converted to the equivalent
uniform annual amounts A for one cycle.
