Abstract:

This thesis effort was directed toward the evaluation of a computer model designed as a tool for assessing cost impacts of aircraft engineering change proposals. The Engineering Change Proposal ECP Cost Evaluation Model was evaluated in a comparative analysis against the Air Force Logistic Command Logistics Support Cost LSC Model. Both models were exercised using data for a hypothetical aeronautical weapon system. The first run of the data served to establish a baseline configuration to which simulated ECPs could be compared against. Subsequent runs were made with changes to the baseline cost estimates recorded. Cost estimates of the baseline configuration were compared to cost estimates of the changed configuration. Comparisons were made of the percent of change within each model and the total cost prediction between the two models. Author
