TURBINE ENGINE COST REDUCTION USING LIFE CYCLE COST TECHNIQUES
This paper describes the technical approach and development of methodologies used to conduct design trade studies from a Life Cycle Cost standpoint. A discussion of computer program capability is followed by a general discussion of several engine design trade studies. The potential for influencing engine design using a Life Cycle Cost methodology is emphasized.
