    Many business decisions require a firm knowledge of several cost concepts. Different types of costs have differing characteristics. Consequently, when reviewing a business case to determine which path to take, it is useful to understand the following cost Missing: transportation. The smartest way to improve your decision making skills is to learn mental models. A mental model is a framework or theory that helps to explain why the world works the way it does. Each mental model is a concept that helps us make sense of the world and offers a way of looking at the problems of g: transportation.

    It became popular in the s as a simple way of weighing up project costs and benefits, to determine whether to go ahead with a project. As its name suggests, Cost-Benefit Analysis involves adding up the benefits of a course of action, and then comparing these with the costs associated with it. Transportation infrastructure and other public investments of a similar scope (“mega-projects”) reflect public sector priorities and objectives, non-pecuniary as well as financial constraints, and a range of decision-making processes. This book describes how decisions made in the public sector with respect to transportation infrastructure.

In practice, most transportation professionals can regularly employ economic concepts and techniques for decision-making—and many do, albeit unconsciously.

Given that billions of dollars are spent each year on transportation systems in the United States alone, and that there is a need for thorough and rational evaluation and decision making for cost-effective system preservation and improvement, this text should be on the desks of all transportation planners, engineers, and educators.

"Lost opportunity" cost of $ will therefore be included in the cost of the book for decision making purposes. The relevant costs for decision purposes will be the sum of: i) 'avoidable outlay costs', i.e.

those costs which will be incurred only if the book project is approved, and will be avoided if it is not.
