Buy vs. Lease Equipment Decision Tree
Build a decision tree to decide if your organization should purchase a brand-new technology or lease the technology.
The biggest concerns or risks with purchasing technology are the rapid changes that happen in technology and the low end-of-life value of technology. Therefore, there is a 40 percent chance that the leased equipment will have better contractual value at the end of the lease-period . Alternatively, there is an 85 percent chance that purchasing new technology will have a lower-than-expected value at the end of the project life. The cost for the technology, if leased, is $11,500, versus the cost of purchasing a new technology, which is $15,000.
Use the information in the table below to decide whether you want to lease versus buy new technology.
Create a decision tree to show outcomes for each decision node using the SilverDecisions website (

). Please note: while the SilverDecisions tool is intuitive, you can find a manual at the following site:

Calculate expected value of each outcome and show your calculations (Probability X Impact).
Export your decision tree as a png. file and save it on your computer.
Explain the best option based on the outcome, and why.
Cost to buy a new technology:
Probability of having lower-than-expected value at the end of the project life:
Probability of that the leased equipment will have better contractual value at the end of the lease-period:
Cost of maintenance for the new equipment:
Cost of maintenance for the leased equipment:
