Paper Abstract

This paper demonstrates Web-LCCA, a life cycle cost model developed by Northrop Grumman Information Technology, formerly Litton-TASC. The model was developed under contract to the United States Display Consortium (USDC) for use in a collaborative fashion by industry and government during the military Display acquisition cycle. Version 1 was released in March 2001 to USDC members and government program offices. Version 2 of the model is under development and features modeling of commercial-off-the-shelf and custom display designs. Other features include hardware commonality across system designs, operational availability versus LCC tradeoffs, cost risk analysis of alternative design options, and enhanced model usability. The model will be available via the Internet for use by both military Government Program Offices and the display industry.
