Abstract : This research addresses the estimation of operation and support (O&S) costs of the Brazilian Air Force KC-137 aircraft. BAF lacks an established set of procedures for computing ownership costs of such aircraft, which prejudices the elaboration of cost-benefit analysis and allocation of budget resources. The purpose of the study is to develop an O&S cost breakdown structure and a set of cost estimating equations that will be used to estimate the ownership costs of the KC-137 aircraft during their expected service life.
