Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO PRODUCE A LIFE CYCLE COST MODEL SPECIFICALLY FOR SYSTEMS DESIGNED AND DEVELOPED IN ADA. THIS MODEL WILL SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFER FROM TODAY'S COST MODELS IN A NUMBER OF IMPORTANT AREAS. A SIZING FRONT END WILL BE PROVIDED TO TAKE INPUT FROM THE CHARACTERISTICS OF FUNCTIONAL SPECIFICATIONS, RATHER THAN REQUIRING THE TYPICAL LINES OF CODE ESTIMATES. THE MODEL W WILL GENERATE OUTPUTS FOR EACH PHASE TAHT INCLUDE COSTS, PRODUCTIVITY AND QUALITY MEASURES THAT ARE USED (IF UNALT ERED BY THE USER) AS INPUT TO SUBSEQUENT PHASES. THIS WILL ALLOW THE MODEL TO BE CALIBRATED AND USED TO ACCURATELY PROJECT COST OT COMPLETION INCORPORATING ACTUAL EXPERIENCE TO DATE (INCLUDING THE QUALITY OF THE PRODUCTS PRODUCED) RATHER THAN SIMPLY THE COSTS EXPENDED.
