Abstract:

The study develops a generalized model used to quantify the cost incurred by the Army when an equipment unit is deadlined. The force-level model developed used float factor, acquisition cost, service life, repair and maintenance cost, crew cost and an impact cost as inputs to develop sample deadline costs for the M551, M163, M167, and M109. A sensitivity analysis on these sample items indicated that the model has considerable stability and is not greatly sensitive to input estimation errors.
