Abstract:

As the result of the introduction of changes to an operating production system, there are three separate and distinct costs that must be considered 1 the cost of the effect of the changes, 2 the cost of the changes, and 3 the basic production cost had the changes not occurred. Cochran developed an S-Curvelog-linear curve relationship for determining item 1 above. These tables can be used to estimate items 1, 2 and 3 above. The tables may also be used to estimate the R and D prototype costs, R and D production costs, the full scale production preproduction model costs, the full scale production first unit costs, the state-of-the-art, andor the R and D and production learning rates curves.
