Abstract

A division of a corporation considers investing in a new, technologically superior process. The case gives the usual data for historical analysis, financial-statement forecasting, and capital budgeting, plus a PIMS review. In addition, uncertainty in the forecasts can be used to introduce multiscenario and/or risk analysis.

Keywords: capital budgeting, forecasting corporate performance, investment analysis, product portfolio, risk analysis, scenarios
