The scope of this paper is to determine the present life cycle cost LCC of ASOAP Army Spectrometric Oil Analysis Program based on certain assumptions. A cost model capable of determining the life cycle cost of ASOAP for both the atomic absorption spectrometry and the atomic emission spectrometry is developed. Next, using this cost model, the feasibility of the oil analysis program is determined. Finally, interest is focused on the benefits that the program has brought about in the past, and future benefits will be projected. A brief history of the Armys intervention into oil analysis, LCC, and cost models is presented. A brief discussion on the two methods of analysis that the Army uses and some estimations of various costs that are associated with ASOAP are included. A general cost model and a cost model for ASOAP is developed with a discussion of the various components. Modified author abstract
