According to the SoHaR website, “Life Cycle Cost (LCC) analysis and Total Cost of Ownership evaluation are the basis for decision making for the wide range of industries and equipment: from IT systems to submarines. LCC analyzes the total ownership costs of various design alternatives and system's components over the projected life cycle of a system. D-LCC (Decision by Life Cycle Cost) makes the LCC analysis easy and comprehensive. D-LCC is a key tool for managers, decision-makers, engineers, ILS personnel, and other staff involved in system acquisition, proposal writing, management, development, production and through-life support.
D-LCC performs Life Cycle Cost (LCC) analysis for small systems consisting of several LRUs, and up to entire weapon systems. Starting from preliminary LCCA at the concept evaluation stage, all the way to detailed evaluation of alternatives leading to final decision making.”
