Abstract : This case example of a hypothetical F-16X MSIP (Multi-National Staged Improvement Program) Operating and Support (O&S) cost estimate, sponsored by AFLC/MM (VAMOSC), has been prepared to demonstrate and test the capability of the Air Force Visibility and Management of Operating and Support Costs (VAMOSC) system to provide unique and detailed experience data suitable for credible and explicit O&S cost estimation for advanced Air Force aircraft systems and subsystems. The specific objective of this effort is: To produce a case example of VAMOSC applicability to O&S cost estimation which conforms to the following conditions: Is compatible with OSD/CAIG and USAF costing guidance. Is linkable to reported experience data for existing aircraft. Provided a VAMOSC-Supported Methodology which can be utilized to predict the impact of configuration changes on system O&S costs. Depicts a methodology which is applicable to O&S costing for any aircraft system in advanced conceptual development. Provides estimates which are verifiable by tests. Identifies areas of VAMOSC requiring enhancement or modification to improve system integrity and applicability.
