Abstract:

Visibility and Management of Operating and Support Costs VAMOSC is a program initiated by the Office of the Secretary of Defense OSD in order to ensure that each Military Department gathers, tracks, and computes operating and support costs by weapon system. VAMOSC II is an Air Force management information system which is responsive to the OSD initiative. The Component Support Cost System CSCS of VAMOSC II gathers and computes support costs by assemblysubassembly and relates those costs back to the end item or weapon system. This report provides in one cover the validation of two algorithms, called Base Exchangeable Repair Costs NSN and Base Exchangeable Modification Costs NSN. The two are combined because of the similarity of both the subject matter and the computational processes. Stock numbered repairable equipment items are returned to the depot for processing when they are categorized as not repairable at the base level. At the depot some of these items may be condemned others are repaired, modified or both repaired and modified. The algorithms estimate the repair and modification costs of repairable items by stock number. The algorithms are defined and described in detail. This report affirms the basic methodology for developing base exchangeable repair and modification costs.
