Abstract: “In 1999, ARINC Engineering Services LLC, under contract to the Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA), surveyed 31 major players in the defense microelectronics industry to produce a set of “standard” non-recurring engineering (NRE) resolution cost metrics for 9 defined types of DMSMS resolutions. The report of those NRE metrics has for the last 10 years been the definitive reference for calculating DMSMS costs and DMSMS cost avoidance estimates used by organizations that did not have their own DMSMS resolution cost data. DMEA and ARINC performed a supplemental update to the report in 2001, adding confidence boundaries and cost inflation factors , but there was no new survey data in the 2001 update. After a decade of use, the DMSMS resolution type cost metrics needed updating. In 2009, the US Department of Commerce (DoC) sent surveys to 249 organizations to refresh the DMSMS NRE resolution costs. Data from the returned surveys are the foundation for this analysis; the principal objective of the analysis is to update the NRE Cost Metrics table in the next issue of the DMSMS Guidebook of Best Practices (SD-22) published by the Defense Standardization Program Office (DSPO).”
