Abstract:

Recent DOD experience shows that a prime factor in the evaluation of alternative weapon systems for performing a particular mission is Life Cycle Cost 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 the 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 II of the Final Report which describes the mathematical and statistical techniques used to obtain the cost estimating relationships and parametric estimating relationships needed to develop the Avionic Laboratory Predictive Operations and Support ALPOS Cost Model.
