Analysis of Electronic Systems, 2nd Edition
World Scientific Series in Advanced
Integration and Packaging – Vol. 4
This book provides an introduction to cost modeling for electronic
systems that is suitable for professionals involved with electronic systems
development, management and sustainment, and advanced undergraduate and graduate students in electrical,
mechanical and industrial engineering.
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, the total cost of ownership of systems, return on investment,
cost-benefit analysis, and real options analysis are addressed.
The book includes a large number of quantitative
examples solved in the text, over 230 problems (detailed solutions to over
90% of the problems are available to practitioners, researchers and
instructors using the book in classes), and over 300 references.
