Abstract:

The operating and support cost model for Avionics Automatic Test Equipment OSCATE was previously developed primarily as an evaluation tool for use in ATE source selection and also in design trade-off studies. This thesis documents the results of the validation of this model. The sources of model data have been identified in detail in order to determine availability and ease future model use. A subjective evaluation of the model reveals it does represent significant operating and support costs and provides a means of evaluating available acquisition alternatives. Model limitations are discussed in terms of their impact on model use. Detail information on data sources, collection methods, and model use are contained in this thesis. Author
