Abstract
A methodology is examined to develop a computer-based life cycle cost model for optical systems. This methodology consists of six major steps or tasks for the investigator. These tasks involve the identification of the major program and cost elements, the structure and programming of the model, the acquisition of data, and initial cost sensitivity analyses using the computerized model. Lessons learned from past computer life cycle cost modeling efforts demonstrate the many difficulties in obtaining accurate, absolute cost estimates. The most effective models are those which accomodate the quality and quantity of the data base and are structured for cost sensitivity and cost comparison analyses.
