Abstract : The appendix presents the computer models developed to perform the AIDAPS Concept Formulation Study Program. The three models used are the AIDAPS Procurement Cost Model, AIDAPS/Aircraft Maintenance Analysis Model, and the AIDAP System Cost Benefit Model. The AIDAPS Procurement Cost Model is utilized to compute the cost factors used to calculate the cost of implementing AIDAPS into the Army system which includes all substantial initial investment and ownership costs. The AIDAPS/Aircraft Maintenance effectiveness achieved by AIDAPS application. The AIDAP System Cost Benefit Model computes AIDAPS life cycle costs, cost savings, and benefits derived from using AIDAPS, and develops the net savings and benefits. (Author)
