Technical Cost Modeling

Technical Cost Modeling methodology by mloew
Posted: 20 Nov 03 (Edited 19 Apr 04)

The Technical Cost Modeling methodology was developed at MIT (http://msl1.mit.edu/mib/dsp/curricula.mit.edu/~dsplan/Docs/Sessions/S6).
Introduction to Technical Cost Modeling Concepts and Illustrations (http://msl1.mit.edu/mib/dsp/curricula.mit.edu/~dsplan/Docs/Sessions/S6/s6a.pdf)

Here is a list of SAE International (www.sae.org) Technical Papers that address this methodology:
