On Aircraft Systems’ Acquisition Cost Estimation: – A Parametric Approach –
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of this master thesis is to increase the precision of the aircraft systems’ acquisition cost estimations required as input to the Saab in-house software employed in concept studies at the company. This is achieved by developing a systematic methodology based on parametric techniques for data collection, normalization and validation, resulting in a mathematical Cost Estimating Relationship (CER) between a technical parameter and the acquisition cost. The accuracy of the CER is evaluated through residual and confidence band-analysis.
This paper is a summarized, de-classified version of the company confidential 82-page project report written at Saab. Confidential information such as numeric values, data sources and references are omitted and replaced by generic substitutes where necessary.
