Abstract:

A parametric method of estimating the production cost for a proposed TARGET Missile Airframe is presented in this report. A cost estimating relationship CER has been developed based upon an independent variable, the estimated airframe weight in pounds. The independent variable Y in the CER, Y ABx squared, represents the average unit production cost for the first 700 airframes produced in terms of FY 77 constant dollars. The methodology used in developing this CER as well as a presentation of data and TARGET Missile Technical Descriptions, is included for the benefit of the cost estimator.
