Facilities Requirements

This chapter describes how the rational determination of facilities requirements and the evaluation of their economic and financial responsibility are mandatory for projects of any significance. Facilities requirements determination may be based on queuing theory in cases where exact or approximate analytical solutions are available, or on computer simulation. The economic feasibility of projects is evaluated by the application of recognized methodologies for comparing the stream of annual economic benefits, normally to the country or region in question. Similarly the financial feasibility, from the point of view of the owner or operator of the facilities, is evaluated by application of recognized methodology for analyzing the stream of annual net cash flow.
