The Air Force Cost Analysis Agency AFCAA directed the Institute for Defense Analyses IDA to collect data, create databases, and develop innovative methodstools to better predict future disposal costs for United States Air Force fixed-wing aircraft. IDA created and delivered a cost-estimating tool which was informed by ten years of actual data from the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group AMARG. The data used in this study were limited to aircraft currently in the AMARG inventory, but the IDA Cost Estimating Relationships CERs allow for estimation of future aircraft disposal costs. The value of this tool is that it allows AFCAA to quickly see the disposal costs of current aircraft both total and by phase as well as to quickly estimate the disposal costs of an aircraft currently in active inventory or of a notional system under development.
