Abstract : With decreasing Department of Defense budgets it is becoming more important to cut procurement cost and at the same time receive more for the money spent. One procurement method with this capability is Life Cycle Costing (LCC). Since vast sums of Air Force money are being spent each year on commercial vehicles, the LCC procurement method could become a viable alternative in their acquisition. The thesis is a study on two LCC techniques which could be applied in this acquisition. These methods are: Total Life Costing and Guaranteed Maintenance.
