Abstract

The problem of multiple internal rate of return (MROR) had been noted in the literature as early as 1781. Various disciplines of studies including actuarial science, engineering economy and political economy attempted to solve the MROR problem. Over the years, numerous researches have been conducted to address the MROR problem. These researches took various directions in addressing the problem and have the tendency to incorporate new tools and techniques in attempts to solve the multiple ROR problem. This paper will review the main foci in multiple ROR research and examine some tools and techniques that have been utilized in engineering economic analysis in general but have not been incorporated into the multiple ROR research. The implications of the research trend to the engineering manager community is presented and discussed. Copyright
