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 Aircraft System Test and Evaluation ASTE 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. Beginning in this document Volume II, a relational data base system is introduced to more easily evaluate ASTE cost elements and physicalperformance characteristics. A Contractor Flight Test cost estimating relationship CER is developed through step-wise multiple regression analysis of data gathered from Defense Contractors and Naval Air Systems Command NAVAIR.
