Smart Investment Tool

This tool calculates metrics for investment analysis documented in NIST Advanced manufacturing Series 200-5. It calculates net present value, internal rate of return, and payback period along with executing sensitivity analysis using Monte Carlo techniques. The tool helps to identify the most economical projects/investments. For instance, it could be used to identify the most economical heating and cooling system or it might be used to rank a set of potential investments.
