Abstract : The report is one of a series, designed for use in a guidebook for life-cycle cost analysis in the Army Materiel Command. Its contents are based on weapon system cost studies. The concept used is that a good forecast of weapon system cost cannot be made using cost categories materially different from the categories in which historical costs for similar or related systems are available. A further premise is that, while historical costs are being collected in a new category structure, estimates must be made in that structure as a temporary expedient. (Author)
