Participants in this course will receive MTS technical
education to appropriately manipulate and apply fixed asset accounting /
engineering data, as well as field developed information, for various appraisal
applications. Accounting, fixed asset systems and indexing sources will be
discussed. Computer "tips and tricks" to enhance assignment cost effectiveness
(saving production time and reducing production costs) will be emphasized. The
components for building your own model will be presented.
Applications for applying modeling techniques include ad
valorem taxation, cost segregation analysis, asset based financing, insurance
placement and proof of loss, fair value accounting (allocations or impairment
studies), federal income tax purchase price allocations, and so forth.
Techniques for converting / translating value data from differing quality levels
of fixed asset data and/or field developed information to the applicable
appraisal value concept will be thoroughly discussed.
Specific topics will include basic accounting for machinery appraisers, value
definitions and level of value review, appraisal application review, crossing
application techniques, characteristics / evaluation of base data, manipulating
base data for modeling (EXCEL computer "tip and tricks"), how to build your own
model, factor source information and structure, indexing rate development,
excess capital cost analysis, physical deterioration rates and stops, functional
obsolescence, economic / external obsolescence, the concept of economic support,
cost to capacity, inutility, relative utilization, and so forth.
