Cost Success as measured under the previous method,
compared to Cost Success as measured under the present method.
Previous method (as used in the 1995 Technical Report) collected all the costs identifiable to EMD.
Present method collects only RDT&E Appropriation costs identifiable to EMD.
Cost Success assigns a rating (5 to 1) based on how close actual costs were to plan.
Rationale for change: using all EMD costs puts too much weight on Procurement Appropriation variance, since Procurement costs generally are much higher than RDT&E costs. Program cost success thus becomes LRIP success.
