Abstract:

An extensive bibliography of industry and government published brochures, pamphlets, studies and reports, gathered in a general state-of-the-art survey as related to Army Aviation, were researched for all references to current and projected methods of cost effectiveness evaluation. The resulting paper is organized in two sections effectiveness evaluation and cost analysis. Methods used by the various contractors ranged from parametric analysis, using mathematical programming and statistical techniques to evaluation of point designs, to a pragmatic after-the-fact effort in response to a customer request. In general, a salutary interest in the subject was apparent throughout industry. Further free interchange between industry and the Department of Defense should improve the negotiation climate, since agreement between two enlightened participants is likely to be smoother and more satisfactory to both parties.
