Paper Abstract

Feature Based Cost Modeling is thought of as a relative new approach to cost modeling, but feature based cost modeling had considerable development in the 1950's. Considerable work was published in the 1950's by Boeing on cost for various casting processes--sand casting, die casting, investment casting and permanent mold casting--as a function of a single casting feature, casting volume. Additional approaches to feature based cost modeling have been made, and this work is a review of previous works and a proposed integrated model to feature based cost modeling.
