Abstract:

The technique developed in the course of the study and which has been reported herein appears to have distinct advantages in the development and maintenance of a more accurate estimate of the labor required for a multi-model program. There are four major advantages of the technique. It has greater inherent accuracy due to the intense scrutiny of each component and the changes required for each model. Secondly, configuration changes are directly relatable to components and thus are reflected in the cost. Thirdly, there is an immediate benefit from the mandatory requirement that a computer program be used to perform the necessary calculations. This provides quick reaction capability for obtaining the cost effect of schedule and technical changes. Lastly, commonality indices are eliminated and all aspects of commonality are directly relatable to cost.
