MANAGEMENT CONSULTING AND RESEARCH INC FALLS CHURCH VA

There are, in fact, several views on the reasons for cost growth or the measures used to calculate and present cost increases by weapon system. MCR has conducted studies of cost growth for many years. This particular paper will discuss the problem from an historical perspective, and present actual results from an analysis of the 31 December 1982 Selected Acquisition Reports SARs.
