This paper examines the unit training costs, defined herein as company and battalion level training, associated with the introduction of a new weapon system into the Army inventory. The Army Life Cycle Cost Model does not address unit training costs, and accordingly there is a significant cost during the acquisition process that is not recognized. Recommendations are included for a means to arrive at life cycle cost figures that include unit training and also enable unit commanders to anticipate training requirements generated by new weapon systems.
