User: In your own words, articulate the pros and cons of each of the four methods of evaluating capital projects.

Weegy: Payback. This calculates the number of years it will take to recoup the cash spent on a project. [ A criticism of payback is that the time value of money is not considered and the cash flows over the entire life of the project are not considered. Accounting Rate of Return or Return on Investment. This approach looks at the increase in accounting profit compared to the increased investment. This approach also ignores the time value of money. Internal rate of return. This method does consider the time value of money and looks at the cash flows over the entire life of the project. The technique computes the rate that will discount the future cash flows to be equal to the cash outlay for the project. Net present value. This method discounts the project’s future cash flows by a predetermined rate, such as the targeted or needed rate. If the cash flows discounted by the targeted rate exceed the cash investment, the project is accepted. That is, the project provides the targeted return or more. ]

Would completing a post-audit of capital decisions affect your methodology going forward? Why or why not?
Weegy: Completing a pos-audit of capital decisions affect your methodology going forward because Capital budgeting decisions are among the most important decisions facing business entities. [ An important aspect of the capital budgeting process is the relationship and impact of post completion audits (PCAs) on the capital budgeting decision process. Feedback environment is an inherent aspect of a PCA. Behavioral researchers have conducted no studies we are aware of on the effect of feedback environment, as incorporated in PCAs, on capital budgeting decisions. The use of PCAs in practice is controversial since they can have both beneficial and deleterious effects on decision makers (Neale, 1993). This is not surprising since the use of different feedback environments, in general, can be either beneficial or deleterious. (Kluger and DeNisi, 1996) The effect of PCAs on the decision maker could depend on the type of feedback environment that exists for the decision maker. ] (More)
