One of the most significant challenges facing consumer packaged goods manufacturers (CPGs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) today is determining the initial purchase price versus the long-term cost of owning capital equipment.

That’s the focus of this webinar! Listen and you’ll learn about:

  • The initial negative cash flows of capital equipment investment
  • The ongoing negative operational cash flows required to utilize that investment
  • The future positive cash flows that occur as a benefit of the investment
  • The eventual gain or loss on disposal or redeployment of the investment

This discussion will provide TCO criteria for both manufacturers and users of capital equipment across industry for use by sales, operations, finance, etc., and help you develop guidelines and checklists that include all major costs for acquisition, operations, and disposal.
