About the Edition

The purpose of this thesis is to develop estimating relationships for missile Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) costs and warship fuel consumption to aid the Naval Center for Cost Analysis (NCA) in performing independent cost estimates for new weapons programs. Standard factors, which represent the percent that each cost element is typically allocated from the program"s total funding, are currently used to predict whether missile EMD costs are roughly right. For fuel consumption, estimating relationships have only been developed for existing individual ship types. None have been developed which use pooled ship types to estimate fuel consumption of new ship types. Regression analysis was used to develop estimating relationships based on physical and technical characteristics. The cost estimating relationships (CERs) developed to predict missile EMD costs explained only about 34 percent of the variance. Due to the low explanatory power, no significant physical or technical factors could be determined. Even though the results are not statistically significant, the associated coefficients of variation are lower than the standard factor coefficients of variation. An estimating relationship with high explanatory power was developed to predict fuel consumption for new warships. Three significant physical and performance factors were determined: steaming hours, age and full load displacement. For new ship types, steaming hours and full load displacement are the significant factors.

Integrated Product and Process Development (IPPD) is the DoD management technique that simultaneously integrates all essential acquisition activities through the use of Integrated Product Teams (IPT) to optimize design, manufacturing, and supportability processes. IPPD facilitates meeting cost and performance objectives from product concept through production, including field support. Technical Director: Development of methods and tools for use in cost and schedule estimating relationships, quantitative risk analysis, and decision analysis.

1. Introduction. Parametric cost models are important tools for mission planners. They identify major architectural cost drivers, enable high-level design trades, enable cost-benefit analysis for technology development investment, and provide a basis for estimating total project by: The goal of the Manufacturing Cost Estimating module is to arm the student with a set of techniques used to address issues unique to estimating in the manufacturing environment. It will be our objective in this module to raise a few of the most common general issues, considerations, and concerns the estimator must be aware of in a typical major.

Reliability engineering is a sub-discipline of systems engineering that emphasizes dependability in the lifecycle management of a ility, describes the ability of a system or component to function under stated conditions for a specified period of time. Reliability is closely related to availability, which is typically described as the ability of a component or system to function. Uncertainty is the arrow in this paradox and uncertainty quantification refers to the determination of the dynamic element of uncertainty. While uncertainty quantification in practice is typically at best considered the result of a risk assessment process based around a technical baseline estimate, this uncertainty typically represents a static snap-shot of current conditions without Cited by:

Adaptation, which is generally well defined, can be estimated using bottom-up estimating techniques since its scope is fixed. The cost tool team and Mr. Donchez developed cost-estimating relationships for integration into a “what-if” analysis tool to support long-range planning for our OPNAV customers.

Donchez has supported the development of an O&S cost estimate and business case analysis (BCA) for the FFG(X). Booster development cost.

As part of its efforts to create a world-class cost estimating capability, the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) wrote a cost estimating handbook and established an independent assessment team to ensure adherence to the handbook.

As a result of this, MDA has received positive feedback from GAO in its progress towards this goal. Life-cycle cost isdefined as the sum of four major cost categories: (1) research and development costs; (2) investment costs, consisting of procurement, military construction, and acquisitionrelated operations and maintenance (O&M) - associated withFile Size: 2MB.

development cost growth measured at the program completion point, and the other bars indicate measurements at five years after MS B. We focus on development cost growth because it is a good early indicator of total program cost growth and because its growth trend is similar to procurement and total program cost growth (see pp.

36–38). The goal of this phase is to reduce the technology risk to an acceptable level, have a defined set of requirements in a Capability Development Document (CDD) and a preliminary acquisition strategy to start an official program in the next phase. Engineering & Manufacturing Development (EMD) Phase Phase EMD is the start of an official program.

The greatest difficulty in estimating relationships for reliability trade-offs derives from the fact that, whereas it is possible to estimate quite accurately such factors as the cost and weight penalties of built-in test equipment, the cost of materials and components, or the worth of a measurable performance parameter, the effect on.
