Abstract : Cost estimating relationships (CER's) for predicting the in-house manufacturing hardware unit costs for cannons during the early stages of weapon system development are discussed in this study. Physical/Performance characteristics regarded as 'cost drivers', known early in cannon development, were selected as independent variables. Six CER's are presented in order of decreasing 'goodness of fit', and each exhibit a correlation at the one percent level (F-test). (Author)
