This project calculates the net present value of waste reduction plans at the aerospace manufacturing company Curtiss-Wright using a capital budgeting analysis. The focus of the analysis is on the financial effect sustainable waste reduction programs have on Curtiss-Wright. This analysis estimates that the benefits of reducing waste through more sustainable programs will outweigh the costs of implementing these programs. The data was provided by Mr. Phillip Felkel, the operations manager at the Curtis-Wright, Shelby, NC site. The data involves real numbers from projects at Curtiss-Wright. Calculations include a discount rate developed explicitly for Curtiss-Wright. The analysis predicts that a waste reduction program like that at Curtiss-Wright will result in both a financial and environmental benefit for Curtiss-Wright.
