Next Vic Chapter Meeting 15 May 07 The Role of Cost Estimating in Defence Projects

Peter Stanley of the DoD will give an unclassified presentation discussing cost estimation and analysis in Defence (case study will be the purchase of the Lockheed Martin JASSM cruise missile). Find out from this presentation what typical cost impacts Defence considers and the depth of analysis that is conducted by Defence. (Chairman’s note: Defence Projects have often been a testbed for developing innovative project controls practices. This will be a good opportunity to get some first-hand insight into the DoD’s methods).
