The objective of the study was to investigate a proposed method of auditing cost-effectiveness analyses of technological changes. The method is based on the use of cost functions to predict costs of operating with and without the improved technology. A comparison of these predicted costs indicates whether the technological change is cost-effective. Results of the comparison can then be used to audit more detailed analyses of the change. The investigation employed econometric techniques in a case study application of the method to a technological change which occurred at the Naval Air Rework Facility, North Island, San Diego, California.
