The atmosphere for modern day rate estimator and analyst is definitely very hard. Computerization, software program, robots, composites, uncertainty, and inte­ grated structures all problem the applicability of our latest instruments and methods. those complaints serve to record the various accomplished and on-going re­ seek within the dynamic global of costing. This rfile is released at the side of the 1st Society of fee Es­ timating and research (SCEA) nationwide convention, held in Boston, MA, June 19-21,1991. It serves to foster and advertise fee examine, and to supply a discussion board to document those findings in furtherance of public curiosity. This quantity is the 3rd of the sequence. the 1st and moment have been released at the side of the 1989 ICNNES Joint convention in Washington, D.C., and the 1990 ICNNES Joint convention in la. My due to our Editors, Professor Jane Robbins and Dr. Roland Kankey; our coping with Editor, Mr. Frank Hett; this system Chair, Ms. Ann-Marie candy; and all those that contributed. R. R. Crum, President Society of expense Estimating and research PREFACE we want to thank the pros who submitted papers to us for evaluate. As any editor will point out, you can't assessment or post papers that aren't sub­ mitted. The articles during this court cases effectively accomplished the referee strategy. every one of those authors used to be rewarded via an extra cycle of adlescent adjustments, be aware processing, and show mailings.

As can be seen from the table the difference in cost between the federated and integrated avionics suite, holding functionality constant, are small, about 10%. The difference increases as the functionality increases, to about 200%. The estimates presented here do not represent estimates for any specific program. The estimates represent only our interpretation of the various options available and the possible differences in cost that could exist. 3. CONCLUSIONS A comparison of the differences in software life-cycle cost with the cost savings in hardware life-cycle cost reveals that, when there is no increase in functionality, there are clear savings with an integrated avionics suite.

5. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FUTURE RESEARCH The research presented in this paper was conducted for the purpose of achieving two goals. First, we sought to develop a technique that would identify the areas where security requirements have a cost impact across the system. Second, determine what is driving these impacted areas and make some estimates on the magnitude of the cost. The cost estimation methodology presented in this paper is structured around the security engineering process involved with building a trusted computer system.
