Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to develop some cost estimating relationships CERs that the supports the contention that higher RM results in lower logistics support costs, and can be used in a variety of ways. Our primary need is a methodology that enables us to quantify the impact of RM changes or levels on existing and new aircraft in terms of logistics support costs. The CERs we are searching for need to be at the weapon system level as opposed to the subsystem or component level.
