Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

I have a question from my university, hope it's ok to ask it here.
 So both NPV and DPP are used to determine the profitability of a project. But what are the advantages/pros of each of them and in what kind of project/condition will NPV be valued more than DPP and vice versa?
 Thank you for any help you can provide.


DPP and NPV show different data - a moment when the profit will cover expenses and overall discounted profit. One does not replace another.

I suggest to add IRR to these parameters.
