Abstract:

This paper describes several related contractural efforts for the U.S. Army by Management Consulting Research, Inc. MCR to build communications-electronics data bases for developing cost estimating relationships CERs and studying cost drivers. The evolutionary process of these efforts from raw to normalized cost and technical data is reviewed. The development of a generic work breakdown structure, enhancement of the Armys cost breakdown structure, and creation of a standard data format are discussed. The development of a user-friendly data base management system for storage and retrieval of data for CER development is described. Potential for a combined data base of over 165 systems and 400 generic components is discussed. Author
