When life-cycle costing or other economic analyses are required to support a design decision, professional estimators must establish construction cost estimates for all options if any one of them is expected to have a first cost in excess of $, The final cost estimate submitted for the % construction documents phase is used as the basis. Parametric cost modeling uses mathematical relationships for cost estimation at the system or sub-system level. This modeling process does require some knowledge of key parameters of the system and the historical data, which represents the cost associated with similar systems (Fatelnig, ). In the development of parametric cost models, one.

to the costs associated with the time factor, engine factor, and its subsequent annual usage. Document Analysis/Descriptors Availability Statement Equipment life-cycle cost analysis, Equipment maintenance, Fleet management, Benefit cost analysis. No restrictions. Document available from: National Technical Information Services. B. Human behavioral problems that affect cost estimation and control Some of the human behavioral problems with costs include the use of best-case minimum cost estimates, political sensitivity to high cost estimates, short term rather than long term or life cycle thinking, and failure to ignore sunk costs. 1. Best case cost estimates.

  Parametric Cost Estimating couples a structured estimating process with statistically based parametric/predictive modeling methods to provide a basis for high confidence estimates. Parametric modeling takes its name from the parameters (or variables) that are modified during the project simulation process. The total cost to the Government or organization of the Acquisition and Ownership of a system over its complete Life Cycle –LCC includes the cost of Development, Acquisition, Support, and, where applicable.

As the name suggests, parametric estimates are based on parameters that define the complexity, risk and costs of a program, project, service, process or activity. The following are illustrative examples.

Independent Naval Cost Estimates • Naval Amphibious Assault Ship: Cost estimates adjusted for non-US costs and for planned multi-yard build strategy. • Naval Hydrographic/Anti-Mine Warfare Ship: Cost estimates for three (3) size ships.

A parametric model for estimating costs in an early phase of development was synthesized, with which it is possible to approximate the full life-cycle costs of. production and operative costs of reusable transportation vehicles is therefore a crucial need. In this context, the proposed work deals with the generation of a parametric cost estimation tool, which consists of several Cost Estimation Relationships (CERs) for the overall reusability development, production and operating costs.

A CER is an equation used to estimate a given cost element using an established relationship with. Operation and support cost distributions from life-cycle costs5. Parametric cost estimation models This method is the most sophisticated and most difficult to develop.

Parametric models generate cost estimates 2UAV, 9th Annual Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Conference, San Diego, CA, June 10 & 11,   A Life-Cycle Cost (LCC) is the total cost of a program from cradle to grave. (also refered to as Total Ownership Cost (TOC)) LCC consists of Research and Development (R&D) Costs, Investment Costs, Operating and Support Costs, and Disposal Costs over the entire life cycle.

These costs include not only the direct costs of the acquisition program, but also include indirect costs. The LRFS Cost Estimating Tool Suite (CETS) attempts to remedy that situation by developing a quick cost estimating tool designed specifically with non-cost estimators in mind.

The tool excels in providing a straw-man cost estimate summary for programs in their early life cycle by guiding the users to address some of the essential questions as.OSCAM Sys is designed for estimating Operating and Support costs for shipboard systems.

Independent and sound cost estimates are vital for effective acquisition decision-making and oversight. Cost estimates also support efficient and effective resource allocation decisions throughout the Planning, Programming, Budgeting, and Execution process.
