This time, however, the positive value remain the same but negative values become zero, reflecting the obvious fact that New England would not proceed with the project if losses were expected to swamp the asset's value, outcomes that become easier to predict with each passing year. Compressed this way, the asset value in 1997 is $13 million. As the future becomes clearer, the value of waiting is reduced. In 1999, the median value of waiting shrinks to less than $2 million. Options pricing analysis convinced New England to scrap the project.

The contract may involve a stream or a lump sum payment to the contractor (Boeing or Airbus) in exchange for the delivery of the plane at a specified time. Since payments are often made prior to the delivery of the plane, a number of clauses are added in the contract to manage the risks sustained by each of the parties if any of the parties were to deviate from the contract stated tenus.

Assume that a process is denoted by its states, i = 1,2, ... n . For example, i = 0,1,2, 00. M while i = 0,1 might denote two states, a claim has occurred or not etc... When we construct a Markov chain, it is possible to switch from one state to another with a given probability.
