Manufacturing Investment Calculator – is new equipment worth its cost?

Manufacturing Investment CalculatorManufacturing Investment Calculator is an Excel template, which makes it possible for a manufacturing company to estimate the return of investment in new equipment with given assumptions and break-even sales volume.

The Manufacturing Investment template is very easy to use. In our core business (see more About us), we frequently work with clients from manufacturing industry. We have tried to fill the model with the most important functionality that one who considers investing in new equipment would need.

However, if you have already decided to invest in equipment and need to figure out what the best way to purchase is or which of two alternative options would bring higher return, you might consider acquiring Manufacturing Equipment Investment Calculator. This template estimates three options of  equipment purchasing (leasing, buying new, buying old equipment) and compares two types of equipment.
