Abstract:

This study examines the effect of production rate on the cost of selected types of military hardware. It was assumed that production rate and unit cost varied inversely and if that could be established, it was hoped that an estimating model could be developed that would express that relationship for various elements of cost. The analyses described here suggest that the effect of production rate on manufacturing labor, manufacturing materials, tooling, and engineering cannot be predicted with confidence.
