Analysis of Economic Feasibility for a Window Cleaning Device

Kyoon-Tai Kim and Young-Hun Jun
Abstract— In recent years, there has been an increased demand from luxury shops for clean windows in Korea. To satisfy this demand, efforts have been made to develop a window cleaning device. However, as these efforts are at an early stage, the economic feasibility of such a device is not yet clearly understood. This study aims to estimate the economic feasibility of a window cleaning device through an LCC analysis. The LCC analysis was done for the conventional cleaning method and a newly-developed window cleaning device. Based on the study findings, it is expected that such a window cleaning device could reach break-even point in seven years after its introduction.

Index Terms— Construction automation, window cleaning, cleaning robot, maintenance, life cycle cost (LCC).
