The B-X : a hypothetical bomber cost study
A description of the techniques used for the cost analysis of hypothetical individual weapon systems, illustrated by applying them to a hypothetical bomber system called the B-x. The Memorandum describes how the cost analyst, when supplied with information concerning the characteristics of a weapon and its operation, converts these into an estimate of the resources required to develop, purchase, and operate the weapon as a system. Sensitivity analysis is described and its use illustrated. 93 pp.
