One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.

A thorough Life Cycle Cost analysis yields a higher level of confidence in the project decision, which is part of the Project Validation calculation.

The application of Life Cycle Cost analysis to find that alternative with the lowest life cycle costs is important, but there will also likely be organizational cash flow issues that need to be considered. There will always be competing demands for the available cash resources of the organization at any given time. Management of cash flow is simplified if the pattern is predictable over the long term.
