Description: Methods other than presented here should be used to assess projects for likely return on investment; but, payback is simple to calculate and can be used for calculations that will indicate the relative attractiveness of alternative improvement projects. This paper illustrates how payback ratios are calculated, how they can be used to rank alternative improvement projects, and how to calculate the benefit value of improvement projects.
