Abstract:

The objective of the project reported in these Volumes is to elucidate the principles of hardwaremanpower cost analysis developed in an earlier study, A Framework for HardwareManpower Tradeoff Analysis During the Weapon System Acquisition Process. In this Volume, six models are presented. The Level III Model is the most complex and its exposition is used to set notation and explain the underlying concepts of all the models. It is intended to be implemented on a large, production computer. The Level II Model, less complex, was developed for implementation on a stand-alone micro-computer of the sort one might expect to be available to a design team. There are four Level I Models, all developed for use on a programmable calculator. Of the six models, all but the Level III Model have been programmed as part of this project. The Level II Model has been programmed in BASIC on a 48 K microcomputer. A Users Guide and Program Manual for that model constitute Volumes II and III of this study.
