Martin is working to develop a preliminary costAc€?obenefit analysis for a new client-server system. He has identified a number of cost factors and values for the new system, summarized in the following tables:
2 Systems Analysts 400 hours/ea @ $50/hour =
4 Programmer Analysts 250 hours/ea @ $35/hour
1 GUI Designer 200 hours/ea @ $40/hour
1 Telecommunications Specialist 50 hours/ea @ a$50/hour
1 System Architect 100 hours/ea @ $50/hour
1 Database Specialist 15 hours/ea @ $45/hour
1 System Librarian 250 hours/ea @ $15/hour
4 Oracle training registration $3500/student
Development CostsAc€??New Hardware and Software
1 Development server $18,700
1 Server software (OS, misc.) $1500
1 DBMS server software $7500
7 DBMS client software $950/client
Annual Operating CostsAc€??Personnel
2 Programmer Analysts 125 hours/ea @ $35/hour
1 System Librarian 20 hours/ea @ $15/hour
Annual Operating CostsAc€??Hardware, Software, and Misc.
1 Maintenance agreement for server $995
1 Maintenance agreement for server $525
Preprinted forms 15,000/year @ $.22/form =$3300/year
The benefits of the new system are expected to come from two sources: increased sales and lower inventory levels. Sales are expected to increase by $60000 in the first year of the systemAc€?cs operation and will grow at a rate of 10% each year thereafter. Savings from lower inventory levels are expected to be $15,000 per year for each year of the projectAc€?cs life.
Using a format similar to the spreadsheets in this chapter, develop a spreadsheet that summarizes this projectAc€?cs cash flow, assuming a four-year useful life after the project is developed. Compute the present value of the cash flows, using an interest rate of 6%.
