In previous versions of TruePlanning, it was difficult to add items relating only to Life Cycle. Adding a Hardware element meant having the Weight of the object added to the Assembly and System weights.

In TruePlanning 2016, a Life Cycle only (no Acquisition Costs), may have zero weight. The Life Cycle inputs are effectively separated from the Acquisition inputs. You can give an object deployment, Maintenance and Spares locations, Hours of Operation and individual costs and shipping weights. These values will give all the necessary Life Cycle outputs, without affecting the Acquisition Costs.
