Abstract:

This report by Desmatics, Inc. is the third in a series of volumes which review procedures used by the Weapon System Support Cost WSSC subsystem of the Air Force Visibility and Management of Operating and Support Costs VAMOSC system to allocate operating and support costs to Air Force Weapon systems. This volume presents the results of an examination of algorithms and data used by WSSC to allocate unit operations. Because unit operations processing differs from one category to another, each is reviewed separately. For each category a description is given of the current WSSC procedures, including input data selection and algorithms. This description is followed by an evaluation which addresses the face validity of these procedures. Desmatics makes several specific recommendations for changes in WSSC processing, and raises several questions for review by Office of VAMOSC personnel. Desmatics conclusions and recommendations are listed in this report, together with accompanying comments from the Office of VAMOSC.
