Capital budgeting analysis and inflation

What would happen to a capital budgeting analysis if inflation were omitted from the cash flow estimates?

Omitting projected inflation would result in a miscalculation of the cash flows from capital budgeting projects. With incorrect projected cash flows, the subsequent analysis and conclusions could also be incorrect, and the company might invest in a value-decreasing project or miss investing in a value-adding opportunity.
