Abstract : Prior to acquisition of a warranty, a cost effectiveness analysis is required to determine the value of the potential benefits received in comparison to the contract cost of the warranty plus Army cost of administration. This computerized warranty model (WARM) is to provide the user (project manager, contracting officer) with an analytical approach for the quantifiable cost effectiveness analysis of warranties on weapon systems procurements. The model helps to prepare the Army should cost position for contract negotiations, to study cost effectiveness of a proposed warranty and to assess risk to the government of not purchasing a warranty.
