Abstract:

A model to provide cost estimates of initial production facilities IPF for a 20mm through 40mm steel-case or aluminum-case family of conventional automatic cannon ammunition is presented in this report. The model is intended to facilitate the preparation of independent estimates in support of decision making early in the acquisition phase. It represents a modified version of previous models over the same size range developed by HQ, ARMCOM, Cost Analysis Division, in that different costs among alternative rounds of different calibers andor component dimensions are generated. The differentiating or adjusting process is based on the premise that production equipment capacities are partially or wholly dependent on the magnitude of certain component dimensions that are known or can be assumed in early estimates.
