Plug-and-Play Cost Objects for Estimating Space Science Missions

Based on methodology supporting NASA missions for 25 years and derived from the Chicago Cost Model used by NASA, the PRICE Systems (PRICE®) Space Missions Catalog for TruePlanning® is a robust set of cost models for estimating space science missions fast, credibly and defensibly.

Space Missions combines the power of the TruePlanning® framework, the hardware model and PRICE research to serve as a one-stop tool for estimating entire missions—from component to system levels through design, fabrication, assembly integration and test and launch operations as well as the costs of support functions for each of these activities.
