Abstract:

Cost as an independent variable is a key tool in the thrust to reduce total ownership cost for defense systems. While the need for CAIV is driven by cost constraints success relies upon identification and use of viable performance cost schedule and risk trade space. The Air Force has integrated CAIV concepts with those in the Reduction in Total Ownership Program RTOO and has published a comprehensive guidebook for better understanding.
