About Total Cost of Ownership

TCO analysis is a cost benefit analysis that determines the economic value of an investment. A TCO analysis includes total cost of acquisition and operating costs. It is used to gauge the viability of any capital investment. It reflects an enterprise's asset and/or related systems total costs across all projects and processes, thus giving a picture of profitability over time.

The TCO concept is widely used in the equipment industry. For example, TCO defines the cost of owning a piece of equipment from the time of purchase, through its operation and maintenance, to the time it is sold or decommissioned.
