The Naval Electronics Design Cost Model NEDCOM is an interactive computer cost model which estimates the life cycle cost of electronic systems to be deployed in a Navy Shipboard environment. It has been designed to aid the system and component designer in conducting designcost trade-off analysis, as well as providing a link between the designer and the logistics support specialist. NEDCOM is implemented on an APPLE II desktop computer system. While far more capable and sophisticated than the programmable calculators used for the Level I Slide-Rule cost modles see Volumes IV and V, the APPLE II is much smaller and less expensive than the full-scale computer systems required for the Level III Model see Volume I. Some of the main features of NEDCOM are the following. Life cycle cost for individual Lowest Removable Assemblies LRA are computed for four levels of repair postures repair at a contractor operated depot, repair at a military operated depot, local repair, and discard at failure. The lest cost of the four postures is automatically selected and aggregated to system level costs to produce a total system life cycle cost estimate.
