Abstract:

The Life Cycle Cost Guide for Equipment Analysis updates and supercedes the Life Cycle Cost Guide for Government Furnished Equipment and its associated Customer Support Package. This document differs extensively from the previous guide in cost model structure, in equation and cost factor description, and in computer program structure. The major changes are 1 The total Life Cycle Cost was divided into three major cost elements Research Development, Investment, and Operation Support 2 The entire Cost Breakdown structure was revised, new cost elements were added, and new equations and cost factors were introduced. Program Management and Termination Costs have also been included 3 Four types of yearly inflation rates Research and Development Procurement, Military Construction, and Operation and Maintenance and yearly discount rates were included to calculate costs in terms of inflated or inflated discounted dollars 4 A new computer program has been developed for this Guide 5 The new computer program enables the analyst to modify the standard Life Cycle Cost Model to his specific project needs without making any program changes. The format of the reports is automatically adjusted for all changes.
