Cost Analysis of Electronic Systems, 2nd Edition

Prof. Peter Sandborn has finished an update on Cost Analysis of Electronic Systems. This book provides an introduction to the cost modeling for electronic systems that is suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in electrical, mechanical and industrial engineering, and professionals involved with electronics technology development and management. This book melds elements of traditional engineering economics with manufacturing process and life-cycle cost management concepts to form a practical foundation for predicting the cost of electronic products and systems. Various manufacturing cost analysis methods are addressed including: process-flow, parametric, cost of ownership, and activity based costing. The effects of learning curves, data uncertainty, test and rework processes, and defects are considered. Aspects of system sustainment and life-cycle cost modeling including reliability (warranty, burn-in), maintenance (sparing and availability), and obsolescence are treated. Finally, total cost of ownership of systems, return on investment and cost-benefit analysis are addressed.

Readership: Graduate students and professionals in electrical and electronic engineering, mechanical engineering and industrial engineering.

Contact Peter Sandborn for more information on cost modeling. You can find the book at World Scientific.
