Abstract:

Description of significant modifications in the Individual Weapon System Computer Cost Model and a listing of the updated FORTRAN-IV program, including a summary of the new variables are given. Changes were made in five general areas 1 attrition aircraft calculations are now based on the discovery that attrition losses can be related exponentially to cumulative flying hours 2 maintenance personnel now, directly scaled with changes in postulated flying hour programs 3 training costs 4 spares and AGE costs now calculated as percentages of the initial aircraft procurement less attrition 5 output operations changes here include zeroing out data erroneously retained from a previous run, an option for bypassing DUMP printout, an option for summing outputs of a series of runs, and significant reduction of core space required to read in data.
