    Try to answer this question in the context of benefits-cost analysis.

    Option-A: A Product Manager wants the team to work on a feature for a prospective customer. The one time cost of development is $100,000. The Sales team estimates that this customer will pay $40,000 as part of up-front license fees and an annual maintenance for five years that starts at $20,000 and grow at 5% per year.



    Option-B: The team feels that it is better to work on resolving some technical issues in the product. The issues – if left unresolved might result in about 5 issues per month from existing customers causing a diversion of 10 hours to resolve each issue. The cost of each development hour is $50 and will rise by 5% per year. The one time cost of resolving the technical issues is $100,000.



    Find out which option is better using: Payback Period, RoI, NPV and IRR.
