With the advent of limited budgets and increased system complexity, more intensive consideration of cost factors for various technical options must be undertaken at the design level. It is the purpose of this paper to present certain general aspects of shipboard installation costs for electrical and electronic systems that may be used by the designer to plan a technically adequate installation for the least possible cost. In order to more fully cover the subject, the paper begins with a brief discussion of the time value of money, the estimating process, and how the designer may evaluate cost against function. This is followed by a discussion of standard material item cost (both procurement and local manufacture), lead time and general availability. The paper closes with a set of recommendations to aid the designer in reducing system installation costs.
