Abstract : An automated Economic Analysis Model computer program designed to aid equipment procurement decisions is described in this report. Net present value, equivalent uniform annual cost, break even points, and savings to investment ratio output are presented in graphical form. Sensitivity analyses presented include lease vs. procurement, varying recurring costs, and varying differential inflation rates. The program was originally developed in China Lake, California on a UNIVAC computer, but was converted by DTNSRDC to run on its Burroughs B7700 computer. Only the converted version is described in this report. Included, are references to the documentation of the original UNIVAC version of the program. Although the program was originally designed for equipment procurement, it was successfully used for an economic analysis of an automated data processing system. (Author)
