Paper Abstract

A methodology for determining the relative cost of optical components, given the basic specifications of these components such as dimensions, tolerances, materials, coatings, etc., is developed here. Each of the specifications for an optical component must be translated into a manufacturing process which has the capability to achieve the required specifications. To achieve the required specifications, the use of both labor and materials is involved. The actual amount of labor and materials required to complete the process is not derived, however the hypothetical relationship of specification to process is shown. An actual mathematical relationship of specification versus process will be derived in future papers.
