What would you use use it for and would it provide a positive return on investment? In your analysis, use the knowledge gained in this course, including the concepts introduced on CVP, incremental and capital budgeting techniques. Highlight the key inputs and the basis for the assumptions/ estimates in arriving to your conclusion. You may identify any factors that you believe would contribute to your analysis and use external sources from industry to put together estimates. If a tax rate is needed, for example, provide a reasonable estimate. Market research on lease rates, etc.. while not specifically required, will contribute to the quality of the analysis.
