Abstract : The FLEX-9E life cycle cost computer model is a user-oriented methodology accommodating most cost structures and their associated equations. It's extreme flexibility allows tailoring to meet requirements of DoD Directives 5000.1, 5000.4, and 5000.28. Also, this methodology has been identified by OMB as having demonstrated successful operation. This program contains two sample cost structures with equations (one for major weapon systems and one for equipment). These cost structures may be used as-is, modified, or replaced by the user's cost structure. Presented as batch processing, this program can be run from a terminal or modified to run interactively.
