ICBM Missile Test Case- LGM118 Peacekeeper

This test case is based on the Missile (ICBM) Template 881C structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of the Peacekeeper. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses production schedule dates and quantities of the Peacekeeper program. No attempt has been made to simulate the production specifics of the program. Therefore, this example should be viewed as illustration of how the missile template can be used to produce a rough cost estimate of a known missile program.
