OS4081 Cost Estimating and Analysis Capstone I

This course focuses on learning from participating in a cost estimation team project. Small-teams (4-6 students) will be given an actual cost estimating analysis project drawn from actual cost problems compiled by the major systems commands and Service Cost Agencies from the departments of the Army, Navy, and Air Force. Emphasis is on cost problem formulation, identification of objectives, measures of effectiveness, articulation of critical assumptions, and outlining of appropriate analytical methods. Class time during the quarter is used for team progress briefings and critical class discussion.
