Abstract:

The report is a compilation of five automated mathematical life cycle cost models for small arms weapons and combat vehicles. Each of these methodologies consist of a mathematical model and nomenclature lists. Some of the models include samples of computer printouts, input data, resultant costs, derivations of pertinent relationships as well as some of the FORTRAN computer programs employed, and other explanatory material. The first model presented is the most highly developed of the five and is described and presented in a comprehensive manner. The methodology, which develops costs according to two different schemes of categorization, simultaneously, consists of some 100 equations and approximately 110 elements or sets of input data, schedules and cost factors.
