Abstract
This thesis presents a review of the Life Cycle Cost (LCC) concept as it is applied in weapon system acquisition. A methodology is developed for preparing estimates of the Support Investment (SI) and Operating and Support (O&S) costs of ship's acquisition programs. The use of cost models in LCC procurements is analyzed. Also, a methodology for implementation of Life Cycle Cost procurement within the Venezuelan Navy is presented. The study constitutes an attempt to introduce the Life Cycle Cost concept within the Venezuelan Navy, therefore the author has avoided indulgence into detailed subsystems, and has concentrated on the working and interrelationships within an entire system.
