PROJECT FINANCE AND BUDGET

  1. You have been hired as a project management consultant to assist the Acme Company in evaluating two different project proposals that they are considering.  Proposal A calls for the construction of a new plant which will require three years to complete and will have much greater capacity than the old plant.  Because the plant will have to be built on the current site, the old plant will have to be razed.  Proposal B involves the renovation of this plant.  This renovation will require two years to complete, but the plant can remain in operation in a reduced capacity during this upgrade.  Once the renovation is complete revenue will be increased by 25% per year, however annual maintenance will be 50% higher that Proposal A.
