AACE Seattle Section April 12th, 2012 Meeting

Presented by Eric Morrison, CCC EVP PMP

Most programs focus solely on the estimated acquisition cost during planning and design, but this only represents a portion of the entire cost picture. Operational and support (O&S) costs constitute one of the largest drivers of an asset's lifecycle cost and can lead to significant budget overruns in future years. For the Navy, these O&S costs include crews, fuel, maintenance and modernization, ordnance, supplies, and support services. Using optimized designs, component selections, and equipment preferences can greatly influence factors such as fuel economy, while arrangements tailored to the mission and operational requirements can greatly impact crew sizes. Since more than 80% of the O&S costs for a system are predetermined and locked in by the time the design and acquisition phase is complete, it is critical to define and align requirements with the budget during the planning and design phase. To help the Navy and its contractors better understand and estimate O&S costs, NAVSEA commissioned the development of the Operational and Support Cost Analysis Model (OSCAM). This presentation will discuss major O&M cost elements and inputs, how the model works, and utilizing OSCAM models in procurements with lifecycle cost estimate requirements.
