Abstract:

Statistical cost estimating relationships CER are used by cost analysts for estimating future systems costs before the costs are incurred. A sample of published studies concerning CERs is reviewed and analyzed and a general prognosis of the techniques involved is presented. Some currently used alternatives to CERs are discussed and methods of improving cost estimating relationships are examined. Major conclusions are that the technique of estimating costs through statistical relationships is sound but that improvements can be realized in certain areas. Author
