Annual Cash Flow Calculations
Resolving a Present Cost
to an Annual Cost
• Simplest case is to convert the PV to a series
of EUAW (equivalent uniform annual worth)
cash flows – [previously A].
• A=p(a/p,i,n)
• A is -PMT in Excel®
• Where there is salvage value
• A will be reduced
• A = F(A/F,i,n)

Annual Cash Flow
Four Essential Points
1. EUAW = PW(A/P,i,n)
2. EUAW is
1. Decreased by a cost
2. Increased by a benefit
3. In Excel® use “-PMT” to calculate EUAW
1. (remember the minus sign)
4. For an irregular cash flow over the analysis
period, first determine the PW then convert to
EUAW

Analysis Period Considerations
1. Analysis period equal to alternative lives
2. Analysis period a common multiple of
alternative lives
3. Analysis period for a continuing requirement
4. Some other period such as project life

5
Analysis Period
Equal to Alternative Lives
• Base the comparison on the life of the
alternatives
• This is the case we have most often considered in
our examples
• This is rarely the case in “real-life” organizations

6
Analysis Period a Common Multiple
of Alternative Lives
• When the lives of the equipment in the two
alternatives varies, use a common multiple of
the two lives.

7
Analysis Period for a
Continuing Requirement
• Where the project will last forever (nothing
does) use an infinite time period.
• In most analyses, organizations often use a
representatively long time period to get a
reasonable estimate.

Some Other Period Such As
Project Life
• Physical equipment usually has a useful life
that is different from the project life.
• In this case, use the project life as the
analysis period.
• This is the most common case in “real-life”
organizations.
