In 1992 the Industrieanlagen - Betriebsgesellschaft IABG, Ottobrunn near Munich, was tasked by the German Ministry of Defense BMVg with the performance of an independent development and procurement cost estimate for a new military transport aircraft, called Future Large Aircraft FLA. At this time the FLA program was in the state of pre feasibility studies. Under consideration of the early phase of the project it was decided to make use of the parametric FASTE model which allows project cost estimating even if little detailed information about a project is available. The paper shows the approach chosen by the cost estimators including analysis and preparing of reference data. The basic principle and input parameters of the FASTE model are discussed. Finally the results of trade-off investigations in order to identify the effects of the variation of some key parameters on the expected costs are presented and described.
