Abstract:

Economic Analysis enjoys widespread use in the Department of Defense as an aid to insure that available funding is invested wisely. The post data collection stage of a cost study requires that analytical techniques, collectively termed economic analysis, be performed. The resultng number crunching pre-decision making stage, when performed manually, may require hours to complete. A1 is an interactive BASIC program modeled after format A-1 found in Army regulation 11-28. Written for the IBM PC, it may readily be converted for use with microcomputer systems throughout the Department of Defense. A1 is easy to use, requiring no computer experience. The results are highly reliable, with human error reduced to a minimum. A1 enjoys a high degree of applicability and allows for multiple runs sensitivity analysis with a minimum of effort.
