Missile(non-ICBM) Test Case-Standard Missile 6

This test case is based on the Missile (non-ICBM) Template 881C structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of the Standard Missile 6. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses production schedule dates and quantities of the Standard Missile 6 program. No attempt has been made to differentiate among the various models of Sidewinder nor has any attempt been made to simulate the multiple production lots 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.
