In the latest study, AFCAA
assisted DCMA by analyzing a defense contractor's business base projections.
While still considered a beta product, the AFCAA is working with the Air Force total ownership cost program team (VAMOSC for other services) to develop an alternative delivery method for AFCAP that better serves customers, reduces e-mail traffic, and provides user trace-ability for future updates.
The author thanks the members of the AFCAA team for inputs and edits.
The AFCAA Aircraft Division developed collaborative cost estimates with ASC for the B-2 Extremely High Frequency (EHF) program and the C-5 Reliability Enhancement and Re-engining Program (RERP).
In a similar fashion, the AFCAA Space Division worked closely with the MILSATCOM program office and SMC/FM to develop a joint independent cost and schedule estimate for the USAF multi-billion dollar Transformational Communications Satellite (TSAT) development and acquisition.
Across each of the divisions of AFCAA
are a myriad of interesting projects, just a few of which are mentioned above.
At AFCAA, I was responsible for preparing the Component Cost Analysis (CCA) for major space programs.
Representatives from SAF/FMC and AFCAA currently lead three FM transformation initiatives: Reengineering Acquisition Decision Support, Expanding Activity Based Costing within the Air Force, and Reengineering Analytical Education and Training.
