Replacement analysis is concerned with the question, when is it time to replace an existing piece of equipment with a new one? The answer to this is not necessarily ``When the old one wears out.'' It is possible, after all, to keep a 1957 Chevy running up to the present day, if you're prepared to spend enough time and money on it. Conversely, it may be worth replacing an IBM XT with a Pentium well before the former breaks down. We therefore distinguish between the physical life of an asset and its economic life . The physical life will sometimes be well-defined, though in some cases, like the 1957 Chevy, we ...
organisation operating in the United Kingdom between 29 October 1925 and 31 December 1995, when the Corps' civilian volunteers were stood down.

For those willing to look, and use some good old common sense, it is a land of opportunity. Just how expensive is compressed air? It takes about 8 hp of electrical energy to produce 1-hp-worth of work with compressed air. Using compressed air to cool electrical cabinets � a typical application � makes no sense! Here�s some food for thought: 1 cubic ft. per minute (cfm) cost - $100 per year in energy cost; 2 psig cost � $398 per year in energy cost for every 100-hp; 50% of the compressed air generated isn�t used for production (Figure 1). The values are based on some assumptions: a compressor operates 8,000 hours a year; the cost ... market research, surveys and trends

Piedritas, Coahuila
Yesterday I took a quick trip to Ciudad Acuña, Coahuila, Mexico to see my friend Oscar Cabello. I’ve invested a meager amount into his effort at restoring a farming and ranching community with tremendous potential but in a horribly run down and sad state. The task is beyond either of our means now that we no longer smuggle dope for money, but it’s a task we both feel compelled to tackle. With the constant news of border violence, I have to overcome a touch of fear each time I make this trip, but surprisingly, the Mexican people I have encountered seem almost to fall over themselves treating me well when I arrive. Even Mexican ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Sherrod not sure she would go back to Ag Dept
The woman at the center of a racially tinged firestorm involving the Obama administration and the NAACP said Wednesday she doesn't know if she'd return to her job at the Agriculture Department, even if asked. "I am just not sure how I would be treated there," Shirley Sherrod said in a nationally broadcast interview. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said Wednesday he would reconsider the department's decision to oust Sherrod over her comments that she didn't give a white farmer as much help as she could have 24 years ago. A conservative website posted video of Sherrod's remarks, causing a furor ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Engineering Economy
Engineering economy, the analysis of the economic consequences of engineering decisions, was originated by A. M. Wellington in his The Economic Theory of Railway Location , published in 1887. For more information on Wellington, see A. M. Wellington . Engineering economy is now considered a part of the education of every engineer. There are many bad ways to make decisions. Because of the uncertainties of the future, even a rational method of decision-making can sometimes result in bad choices. However, a bad result is almost guaranteed by a poor decision-making process. A fundamental principle is that choices can be made only ...
