Abstract : Aircraft engine repair costs labeled as actual on three reports were investigated. From an initial survey it appeared that these actual repair costs should be identical for the same model, design, and series engine when in fact they were not. By examining the procedures used to generate each report and certain facts concerning each report, it was found that the differences were explainable and justifiable. Each reported actual cost did not conform to the accepted accounting definition and did not accurately describe the type of cost involved. A recommendation was made to change the terminology to preclude misunderstanding and confusion arising from a very complex cost system. (Author)
