Abstract : In the past, the commercial use of warranties for the purchase of turbine engines has proven cost effective. The use of warranties is now viewed by the Air Force as a viable procurement option for future Air Force turbine engine procurement. The Propulsion System Program Office (SPO) has investigated the use of warranties and recognizes the need for a system that can analyze the life cycle cost of an engine under warranty. This thesis shows the development of a decision support system in a computer model that assesses the turbine engine life cycle cost under warranty. Two versions of the warranty model were developed to provide short and long term warranty analysis and both systems were integrated into the total decision support system designed to assist SPO analysts and contract specialists to evaluate the cost effectiveness of a turbine engine warranty.
