This case example of a hypothetical F-16X MSIP Multi-National Staged Improvement Program Operating and Support OS cost estimate, sponsored by AFLCMM VAMOSC, has been prepared to demonstrate and test the capability of the Air Force Visibility and Management of Operating and Support Costs VAMOSC system to provide unique and detailed experience data suitable for credible and explicit OS cost estimation for advanced Air Force aircraft systems and subsystems. The specific objective of this effort is To produce a case example of VAMOSC applicability to OS cost estimation which conforms to the following conditions Is compatible with OSDCAIG and USAF costing guidance. Is linkable to reported experience data for existing aircraft. Provided a VAMOSC-Supported Methodology which can be utilized to predict the impact of configuration changes on system OS costs. Depicts a methodology which is applicable to OS costing for any aircraft system in advanced conceptual development. Provides estimates which are verifiable by tests. Identifies areas of VAMOSC requiring enhancement or modification to improve system integrity and applicability.
