Life cycle cost analysis

A life cycle cost analysis calculates the cost of a system or product over its entire life span.

The analysis of a typical system could include costs for:

  • planning,
  • design,
  • development,
  • production,
  • maintenance,
  • disposal or salvage.
This cost analysis depends on values calculated from other reliability analyses like failure rate, cost of spares, repair times, and component costs.
