Abstract:

The Quaternary S-Curve was designed for cost-quantity adjustments necessary under these conditions 1 when a cost estimate for a change in the production phase is needed and the production cost had there been no change is needed and 2 a relationship is needed to estimate R and D prototype costs, R and D production costs, full scale production preproduction model costs, and full scale production first unit costs. The estimates in 1 are particularly useful in negotiating changes to contracts. The relationships in 2 are useful in estimating Design To Unit Production Costs from cost-quantity data available in the R and D phase. Author
