Abstract:

Whenever a stock list item has not been procured for several years, it is expected that there will be some increase in the new unit price over the old acquisition price, particularly because of the increased labor and material costs to the manufacturer. Then the question arises What reasonable increase in costs can the U.S. Navy Ships Parts Control Center SPCC expect on material that has not been procured for one year, two years, or several years. Two different approaches, one by historical data and the other by the cost index, have yielded approximately the same average increase 4.6 vs. 4.9. It seems reasonable, then, to believe that the real increase is approximately 5.
