Abstract:

All of the NATO nations are faced with major concern for the growing cost of defence and the need to ensure that cost and performance are optimized. The requirements and related costs of weapon systems have come under close examination. The entire life cycle of a weapon system and its subsystems must be examined. The cost of design and development must now include not only the cost of production but also deployment, training, operational use, and support. The use of new technology and new management techniques are essential to obtaining the most for the available money. The purpose of this Lecture Series is to examine the latest methodologies of costperformance comparison and trade-offs for aircraft engines. Information will include data collection, analysis, modelling and estimating all development and operations costs. Also addressed will be contractual provisions and the costs related to incentives for performance and reliability. The latest applications in both government and industry will be covered, with examples and experiences from the military and civilian sectors. Author
