Define the CPFH model and the data used to compute hourly costs
Once these assumptions were validated, changes in CPFH could be calculated, factoring in the following general assumptions:
Kimbrough identified the three major cost variables of the aircraft CPFH calculation model to be:
CPFH is calculated by adding the three major cost variables and dividing by the number of hours flown throughout the fiscal year.
Assuming these ratios can be applied to strategic CPFH models across any weapon system, we are able to estimate CPFH changes based on ASD and the number of sorties flown.
With the statistical analysis complete, we are able to examine and discuss the specific impact of failures to CPFH under two distinct scenarios.
This model is represented in Figure 2, and although the data used in this research was notional ($6,000 original CPFH for a 1.
CPFH will increase in this scenario as the numerator is not decreasing at the same rate as the denominator.
