Marshall & Swift Equipment Cost Index now available online to NC State Readers

NRL News - Wed, 2013-05-15 11:59

The NCSU Libraries now provides NC State readers with Marshall & Swift Equipment Cost Index online.

NC State users will need to authenticate themselves with a Unity ID to get access to the 2nd Quarter 2013 Marshall & Swift Equipment Cost Index. This will be updated quarterly. February 2012 and older listings of the Marshall & Swift Equipment Cost Index can be found in the “Economic Indicators” page of the journal Chemical Engineering.

Marshall & Swift Equipment Cost Index was created to make comparisons between two former quarters or years. Index comparisons are developed by dividing the index for the date for which a cost is desired by the index for the date of the known cost and multiplying the resulting factor by the known cost. The Marshall & Swift Equipment Cost Indexesare based on a national average for 47 different industries. A cost index is made up of a market basket of equipment and indicates the general direction in which equipment costs are moving. They represent an estimate of the trends in installed equipment costs from 1914 to date.
An individual industry index represents a composite of the entire plant equipment and does not consider machinery or other major items individually. The cost of individual plants or pieces of equipment may deviate from the given index, but in a typical industry, the overall costs will follow the
index. The indexes are national averages, and are computed quarterly. Costs representing industrial and manufacturing engineering, machinery, mechanical and electrical
installation, office equipment, furniture, fixtures, hand tools, and other items are combined in the proportion to their average occurrence in each of the listed industries. These are additionally weighted by a factor representing the general business activity and status of the economy at the time of computation.
