See BCF 216V, Course converted to VILT only. The course covers the basic concepts and methodologies needed to develop operating and support (O&S) cost estimates. Emphasis is on the cost estimating techniques that are more commonly used in an O&S estimate; especially those that are not as widely used outside of an O&S estimate. Students will focus on understanding the elements of the O&S Cost Estimating Structure. The course culminates with students creating and justifying a small O&S estimate.
