    Since the summer is dragging on I figured I would spice things up with a little bit of engineering economics. What better way to kill the time then doing boring problems? :) These are problems that I am taking from my text in preparation for my exam and I will post the solutions as I solve them. Enjoy.

    It is no walk in the park for me either. Business like thingies doesn't mesh with the way engineers are wired. Whoever put this nonsense in the curriculum had a very sick sense of humor. When I propose a project or resolution to a problem, I could care less how much it cost as long as it works. They should just leave the fit, form, and function to the engineers and the cost to the bean counters, lol. Now they screwed up by making us cost justify everything which takes the fun out of engineering. :eek:

    I will spend another hr or two and I am going to bed. The problems would probably be easier if I keep my arse off of this site, lol. Forever the master of procrastination, lol.

    ... in the assumptions. Estimated minimal untis based on exceeding current production to match current revunue with a lower selling price.

    Now that I have seen one I won't make that mistake again. Good questions.
