Capital Budgeting for Interrelated Projects:
by Paul D. Childs, Steven H. Ott, and Alexander J. Triantis
A Real Options Approach
The graph may take several seconds to load. To function properly, the graph below
should be viewed in Netscape 3.0 or later or Internet Explorer 2.0 or later.
The graph above shows the various policy valuations at time t1 vs the
outcome of the first project. The black curve is the value of doing nothing,
the blue curve is the value of implementing project a only, the green
curve is the value of developing project b only, and the red curve is
the value of implementing project a and developing project b. The
color coded bar along the bottom of the graph corresponds to the optimal
intermediate policy for a given value outcome for project a at time
correlation coefficient (between the benefits of the two projects) changes from
-1 to 1 as the animation progresses. All other parameters match those of Figure
2 from the paper.
Netscape Directions (for the standard configuration): To start the animation, click
anywhere on the graph. Click again to pause the animation.
You can right click to get a menu to rewind to the start
of the movie, forward to the end of the movie, or move a
frame forward or back. If you have another plugin installed that views .avi
files, see the directions for the plugin.
Internet Explorer Directions: Use the controls
below the graph to play the animation, pause or rewind the animation.
