Abstract : The following sample of a CAIG(Cost Analysis Improvement Group) Operating and Support Cost Estimate Report covering a hypothetical case has been developed to further assist the cost analyst in the preparation of cost estimating reports submitted to the DSARC and CAIG during the acquisition process of a new weapon system. The sample is intended to show an example of how Operating and Support Costs can be developed for CAIG review with available data bases and one example of an appropriate format for presentation of cost estimates. The existing A-7E data base was used only to illustrate the need to relate an estimate to an existing similar system and to ensure a constant relationship between values and the Cost Element Structure. Each case should address that data which is the most complete and accurate for its purposes. The level of detail depicted in this example may be greater than that which is available or appropriate to a specific case.
