AbstractProject objectives are to develop an innovative method for estimating total logistics life cycle costs for Navy systems/equipment, provide for trade-off analysis between competing designs, and select the lowest logistics life cycle cost. This exploratory effort will produce a methodology for estimating each of the logistics cost drivers associated with each phase of the life cycle that can be tailored to the requirements of an acquisition program. Total life cycle cost will be derived as a compilation of life cycle phase costs for concept exploration and definition; demonstration and validation; engineering and manufacturing development; production and deployment; operation and support; and including deactivation and disposal or reclamation. The effort will utilize cost estimating relationship (CER) development techniques and parametric modeling for application to each of the ten logistics disciplines identifying a common set of parameters for different levels of system/equipment technology.
