It allows specifiers to compare either the initial and life-cycle costs
of hot-dip galvanizing or a duplex system to various other corrosion protection coatings.
Target costing is an activity which is aimed at reducing the life-cycle costs
of new products, by examining all possibilities for cost reduction at the research, development and production stage.
GAO's objectives were to (1) develop an independent estimate of the full life-cycle costs
to homeport a nuclear aircraft carrier at Mayport and (2) determine to what extent the Navy's estimate meets the characteristics of a high-quality cost estimate.
Various States and organizations also have established their own procedures for analyzing life-cycle costs
The inherent strengths of HPC allow for greater design efficiencies, shorter construction cycles, and lower life-cycle costs
But because of its long life span, its life-cycle costs
may outweigh the first-costs.
Current resins and adhesives lack adequate strength, stiffness, durability, and reasonable life-cycle costs
to revolutionize composites and construction methods, and thus capture large, new industrial markets.
The result is the potential for lower deployment and life-cycle costs
, and higher revenue per subscriber.
3 billion life-cycle costs
will be spent on seven major contracts.
Based on these assessments, one or more cost-effective alternatives will be proposed, including an estimate of the capital and life-cycle costs
of the solutions.
Base capital expenditures (CapEx) on lowest life-cycle costs
The fluid extends paper insulation life, lowering life-cycle costs
