Abstract : The essay establishes that defense management is in need of improvement, that although a variety of reasons can be found to explain this situation, cost estimates are a prime culprit. Costs are the common denominator which translated all aspects of a system, no matter how technical or complex, into understandable terms. The paper briefly sketches the dimensions of the problem and provides an insight into cost analysis. (Modified author abstract)
