Digital Avionics Information System (DAIS): Impact of DAIS Concept on Life Cycle Cost--Supplement. Final Report.
Goclowski, John C.; And Others
This supplement to a technical report providing the results of a preliminary investigation of the potential impact of the Digital Avionics Information System (DAIS) concept on system support personnel requirements and life cycle cost (LCC) includes: (1) additional details of the cost comparison of a hypothetical application of a conceptual mid-1980's DAIS suite versus a conventional avionics suite used in a close-air-support (CAS) aircraft, both with one major modification/retrofit; (2) appendices; (3) model output reports of the Life Cycle Cost Impact Modeling System (LCCIM); and (4) data used in the comparison. Both non-DAIS historical and DAIS theoretical reliability, maintainability, cost model batch output reports, and data bank equipment identification cross reference lists are in computer printout form. Cost element descriptions and data provided include detailed descriptions of each of the cost levels involved in life cycle cost (LCC), mathematical formulas and sources of data used in computing LCC, special considerations involved in the computation of LCC, and a summary of the LCC computation for each of the cost levels. Reliability and maintainability parameters, lists of cross references, and a list of acronyms are given. A 15-item bibliography is included. (CHC)
