dc.description.abstractThis thesis is a Life Cycle Cost (LCC) evaluation of the proposed acquisition of a High Power Device Tester (HPDT) to increase the capabilities of the Consolidated Automated Support System (CASS). It develops a LCC model for HPDT and the applicable existing ATE. The LCC model results are compared and evaluated for performance based on the Net Present Value of the annual and cumulative funding outlays. Its conclusions are that HPDT will be cost beneficial over the existing ATE and will lead to great savings in aviation support costs. These cost savings however, are vulnerable to technology growth induced obsolescence and program introduction decisions. Such decisions include delays in implementation which will cause continued support of the higher cost systems. Delays in off loading the existing ATE also affect the cost effectiveness of the HPDT and may result in costly support of both systems.en_US
