Questions of capital investment appraisal are linked with long-term decision making. Capital expenditure is concemed with the purchase of large capital items. Benefits from such purchases are likely to be derived for several years. The capital investment appraisal techniąue is used to consider long-term capital projects. It is necessary: to determine a projecfs viability, to put projects in order so that a choice can be made among altematives. The principal methods used for capital investment appraisal are: accounting rate of return, the payback method, net present value, and intemal rate of return. Capital investment appraisal techniąues do not take into account risk and uncertainty. The use of probabilities and sensitivity analysis can prove useful in understanding uncertainty. The use of standard deviation can be useful in the understanding of risk.
