This report presents a life cycle model that was developed to use Air Force accounting system data to determine the cost of aircrew training and to differentiate between simulator and flight training costs. A hierarchical cost model is presented that relates training costs to cost interests of various levels of Air Force management. Sources of cost information are specifically identified. Selected cost data are presented, as is a computational example of how to use the model. Recommendations are made for enhancing the accuracy of some cost data. Training device worth of ownership also is addressed. Worth is defined as benefit a procedure for quantifying worth is described. Author
