Course description l.jpg

Course Description

Topics are studied from the perspective of Engineering Professionals working in business organizations


Topics covered l.jpg

Topics Covered

  • Time Value of Money

  • Capital Budgeting

  • Capital Formation

  • Financial Accounting and Reporting

  • Performance Measurements

  • Working Capital Management


Course objectives l.jpg

Course Objectives

  • Develop an understanding of what is required for an otherwise successful engineering project to be considered a financial success.

  • Develop an understanding of what is required for business enterprises undertaking such projects to be considered financially successful.


The problem l.jpg

The Problem

  • Why do some finance and accounting managers say, “ The Engineers just don’t get it” ?

  • Why do some engineers refer to business skills as “Soft Skills”?


A question of context l.jpg

A Question of Context ?

  • The Value “111”, is it “one hundred eleven”, “seven” or “two hundred seventy three”

  • (decimal, binary or hex)

  • We shipped $12,000 product this month and collected payments of $8,000, What are our “Sales” for the month, $12,000 or $8,000 ?

  • (“accrual” method or “cash” method )


Even the hand calculators are loaded with different functions l.jpg

Even the hand calculators are loaded with different functions

  • Engineering calculators; Sin, Cos, Tan, Pi, Log, Deg, Rad

  • Financial Calculators:

    • PV – Present Value

    • FV – future value

    • IRR – Internal rate of return

    • PMT – Payment

    • I – Interest rate

Finance and Accounting for Engineers views individual projects and businesses as though they were machines.


Simple business machines l.jpg

SimpleBusiness Machines

Projects are viewed as machines fueled by capital, operated over time and producing a measurable output. We start with the time value of money as applied to simple cash flows including future sums, annuities and perpetuities. We then investigate the more complex cash flows engineered in the capital budgeting process, and introduce the element of risk.


Slide41 l.jpg

What’s the FV of an initial $100 after 3 years if i = 10%?

0

1

2

3

10%

100

FV = ?

Finding FVs (moving to the right

on a time line) is called compounding.


Slide42 l.jpg

After 1 year:

FV1= PV + INT1 = PV + PV (i)

= PV(1 + i)

= $100(1.10)

= $110.00.

After 2 years:

FV2= PV(1 + i)2

= $100(1.10)2

= $121.00.


Slide43 l.jpg

After 3 years:

FV3= PV(1 + i)3

= $100(1.10)3

= $133.10.

In general,

FVn= PV(1 + i)n.


Complex machines l.jpg

Complex Machines

  • Simple cash flows are expanded to complex business enterprises. We review the basics of financial accounting and reporting with the goal of teaching the engineer the language of the financial community. With the terminology in hand, we look at inventory and its relation to product development activities


Performance measurements l.jpg

Performance Measurements

We then look at performance measurements for business enterprises; with the goal of learning what is normal, extraordinary and troublesome for various types of businesses.
