Abstract:

This report described the accounting Model developed by AGMC to evaluate the Life Cycle Costs of Inertial Navigation Systems. However, it is a general purpose Model and may be tailored for other than Inertial Navigation Systems by simply re-naming parameters as applicable. The purpose of the Model is to provide a method to compare two or more types of systems, or maintenance options on the same system. It provides a simplified approach to modeling costs, as the number of different types of input data required is relatively small. This Model has the capability of isolating and identifying start-up costs and recurring costs. It allows analysis through three indenture levels Line Replaceable Units LRU, Shop Replaceable Units SRU, and Depot Replaceable Units DRU. Included in this report are a description of parameters, Model equations, a sample run print out and a program listing of the Model. Author
