A Valuation Model for Project Standby Capacity
AbstractThis paper addresses the issue of project standby capacity optimization for capital budgeting. A detailed analysis and case study show that this is a particular real-option based situation, which solicits the use of statistical simulation. The method can be recommended as a useful heuristic for corporate capital budgeting, as well as for college-level class instruction.
