This report presents generalized equations for estimating the development and production costs of aircraft airframes. It provides separate cost estimating relationships (CERs) for engineering, tooling, manufacturing labor, and quality-control hours; manufacturing material, development support, and flight-test cost; and total program cost. The CERs, expressed in the form of exponential equations, were derived from a database consisting of 34 military aircraft with first flight dates ranging from 1948 to 1978. In addition to the basic objective of developing an updated set of airframe CERs, the study also examined three specific possibilities for improving CER accuracy: (1) stratifying the full estimating sample into subsamples representing major differences in aircraft type; (2) incorporating variables describing program structure and airframe construction characteristics; and (3) for the fighter aircraft only, incorporating an objective technology index into the equations.

In recent years, a number of attempts have been made to estimate the cost of future weapon systems toward the goal of optimizing acquisition policy. This report focuses specifically on the effects of material mix, manufacturing techniques, and geometric part complexity on the cost of military airframes. It begins by offering background information on those materials that are most critical to airframe manufacture and on the relative advantages of both traditional and evolving part fabrication techniques. It then proceeds to a quantitative analysis of the cost implications of various materials and manufacturing techniques on airframe production, drawing both from an industry survey and from analysis of industry data. The data thus derived are then integrated with those of a comprehensive historical database. The report concludes that composites, while offering a number of advantages over metals in airframe manufacture, are generally associated with higher costs across a range of categories. At the same time, it concludes that while new manufacturing technologies hold the potential to diminish airframe manufacturing costs, the increased airframe complexity of future fighter aircraft may well offset this advantage. The report recommends that cost analysts remain abreast of changes in industry practice so that they may more accurately gauge the potential effects of such changes on future airframe costs.
