Hey Guys,

Great Job on the spread sheet it looks really good and based on the possible inputs there is some really good information that could be displayed with its use. There were only a few things that I found that need some attention, just minor errors.

On the instructions tab in the ECM, the link "here", located next to the FedEx values explanation is not functioning properly. It lead me to a blank area in the same spread sheet.

Also, in the instructions tab, under optional input explanation you need a space between "projectionsthat."

On the input page I discovered a couple of links that did not lead me to the required location and they are as follows:

-> "Average time to reach destination (days)" -> "Average cost of shipping per document" -> "Power consumed by printer (Watt)" -> "Pounds of CO2 emissions related to one sheet of paper"

Other than the problems that I listed above that were encountered with ECM spread sheet I found nothing else. Once again great job and I'll see you guys in class.

Hey Guys,

Great job on the spreadsheet and appropedia page. I found the colour coordination in the spreadsheet to be effective. The spreadsheet was well explained and does a great job of presenting the information clearly. I found a couple small items:

- There was a capitalization error at the beginning of the Time Related Costs section, which I corrected.
-The “References” tab of the spreadsheet has the heading in blue as “Executive Summary”
-The last table in the projected expenses section of the Calculations tab isn’t completely framed.
All of the inputs seemed to be working well when I tried them out. I didn't see any other errors. Great job.

Hey guys, spreadsheet looks nice!

-I also had the same problems with the hyperlinks on the input page.
- I'm not sure I fully understand what 'Average hours lost per day of shipping' means on your input page, maybe you could explain it more?
- You may want to define 'package' as used in calculating 'Gallons of fuel per ground package'. B.Sexton 19:23, 10 February 2010

Hey, The excel file is looking very good, kudos for making the changes after each peer review. I spent some time looking through the Appropedia page sadly at the same time as Landon. There are a few changes that have been made. In the Environmental impact section it would be advantage to add hyperlinks or references to some of the things that were cited in your excel file. Good job including the fact that there is resistance to this ECM in your conclusion. One last thing, in the reference section for the excel file you go into detail about shipping costs, the appropedia page does not mention variable weights of packages. This also changes shipping costs. It appears that for the scope of this ECM it is constant, but something should be mentioned.

Ya, that was weird Jerome. Some of my edits were deleted..


  • need to cite some of your claims 'significant source of GHG release' - where do you get this impression? I have indicated 4 -5 places that need sourcing to get you starting, there are a few others as well.
  • should put some examples in the appropedia page so it's easy for the reader to comprehend, for instance - how does ATM work - what are some packages and there emissions associated with them?
  • what are the costs associated with couriers, quick overview
  • generally, more detail in economic impact and economic costs would allow the reader to better understand the breadth of the topic

*what's up with your IRR, it should give a number -I see you left that comment, but positive cashflow produce an IRR

  • it also wasn't clear to me where your multiplications come from in your calculations page in the excel doc like [A]* [CR]*[B]. or at least the logic behind the letter use

nice work, the spreadsheet if very thorough and I look forward to reading Version 2.0 of the appropedia page! L.Gardner

references[edit source]


To get your references to show up on your page add the following lines near the bottom:

==References== or some other appropriate subheading.
<references /> this code tells the wiki where to place your references.

Nice work so far. --Lonny 08:20, 11 February 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

What I find easy to remember is this: {{subst:notes}}
That substitutes in the contents of {{notes}}. --Chriswaterguy 10:06, 11 February 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
