The purpose of this research is to develop a procedure to consider the effect of a production rate change on direct production labor requirements for additional airframe production. The procedure encompasses the needed elements of data collection, variable formation, data analysis and forecasting. In the following chapter, airframe cost elements are discussed and the topic is narrowed to estimating airframe direct production labor hours. A third chapter summarizes previous studies in the area. The fourth chapter outlines the approach for conducting the research and identifies sources of data. An analysis of the data is presented in the fifth chapter. The paper closes with a summary, some conclusions and suggestions for further research.
