Abstract : The report presents a methodology that would guide a Product/Project Manager in making an informed selection from among several single prototype aircraft, based upon cost and effectiveness considerations. Measures of effectiveness are defined and a cost-effectiveness index (effectiveness per dollar) is determined and recommended as a basis for selection. A numerical example is presented, demonstrating the application of this model. (Author)
