Ordnance Test Case-MGM 142 HIMARS

This test case is based on the Ordnance Systems 881C structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of HIMARS rocket artillery system and accompanying missiles. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses schedule dates of the HIMARS program. No attempt has been made to simulate the HIMARS design heritage or quantities of spares, prototypes, and production units. Therefore, this example should be viewed as an illustration of how the ordnance template can be used to produce a rough cost estimate of a known ordnance program.
