Abstract : An attempt to compare the cost of overhauling a jet engine at alternative overhaul facilities must consider the various costing concepts and methods involved. Stated costs which are presented without a reference to included and excluded cost elements are often misleading and unrealistic. Major differences between a government facility and a private facility in regards to operating costs must be identified and included in any cost comparison. The report presents the basic costing methods pursued by two overhaul facilities and discusses the various cost effects which the two methods are likely to produce. A final cost comparison is presented after consideration of these effects. (Author)
