Abstract:

Recent DOD experience shows that a prime factor in the evaluation of alternative weapon systems for performing a particular mission is Life Cycle LCC. Since 70 of the system LCC is determined by the end of the conceptual phase, it is important that techniques to predict LCC be available during that phase. Since system definition is not complete enough in this phase to perform detailed analysis using accounting models, the major tool which can be used is parametric estimating models. This report describes a model which relates the available design parameters to LCC via various cost estimating relationships CERs. This document is Volume I of the Final Report which describes the development of a model for the Air Force Avionics Laboratory, the Avionics Laboratory Predictive Operations and Support ALPOS Cost Model. The ALPOS models CERs are utilized to estimate operating and support costs of avionics line replaceable units LRUs. The Air Force Program Monitor was Lt Thomas G.
