Abstract
Life cycle cost (LCC) was studied as a design evaluation function for electronic equipment. Sample equipment data were analyzed to discover cost estimating relationships. Using these relationships and basic cost parameters, a LCC model was developed in the BASIC computer language. The model was exercised to produce output for a variety of hypothetical electronic assemblies and operating environments.

The resulting LCC estimates were statistically analyzed, leading to conclusions about design approaches to minimizing the LCC of the equipment studied.
