Abstract:

There is an increasing requirement from high levels within the Government that the Navys aircraft cost estimators and analysts provide explicit estimates for the sub-elements of Aircrat System Test and Evaluation efforts. The data required to produce more accurate and detailed estimates represent lower levels in the Aircraft Work Breakdown Structure WBS than previously available. This is a two volume thesis. This volume examines the WBS and Contractor Cost Data Reporting CCDR system with a description of current reporting practices and implementation shortcomings. Recommended courses of action to improve reporting requirements and thereby improve data quality and cost estimates are proposed. Major cost drivers for ASTE, from both the perspective of Defense Contractors and Military Flight Test Centers, are discussed. Keywords Theses Financial management Materiel acquisition.
