Abstract:

This report documents the revisions of a parametric model for estimating Naval aircraft operating and support costs developed by Administrative Sciences Corporation. The model provides an estimate of average annual and life cycle O and S costs based on aircraft physical characteristics and basic program parameters using parametric cost-estimating relationships, cost factors and throughputs, and has been used to support numerous cost analyses prepared for CAIG review as well as other special studies such as the Naval Escort Force Mix Study and the Sea Based Air Study. It is updated often in order to remain responsive to each particular analysis, to reflect the changing nature of Naval aviation, and simply to remain timely. This report reflects the status of the model after incorporation of all FY1976 data. The bulk of the report is concerned with providing a clear, concise and complete definition of each cost element and the way it is estimated by the model.
