Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis was to determine the ideal personal computer PC-based Cost Performance Report CPR analysis software package currently available. In conducting this study, evaluation criteria needed to be selected for analyzing the software. In order to establish what criteria were to be used in evaluating the CPR analysis software, two questionnaires were sent to Air Force Systems Command product divisions. The first questionnaires asked the users what features would be useful andor ideal in a CPR analysis software package. The second questionnaire then asked the users to rank order the criteria established from the first questionnaire. The final evaluation criteria were then selected based on an analysis of the responses to the second questionnaire. Upon selection of the criteria, four PC-based CPR analysis software packages were evaluated against those criteria. Further analysis of the CPR software packages was conducted on a decision support software package, Expert Choice. Expert Choice ranked the CPR software packages with respect to the evaluation criteria established. A sensitivity analysis was also performed with regard to the importance of the evaluation criteria in ranking the software packages.
