Development of methods for reducing engine costs may offer better opportunities for improving the cost effectiveness of future military aircraft than do projected engine performance improvements. A technique for evaluating the worth of both cost and performance parameters is described and a review given of methods currently used for optimizing these parameters during the engine design process. Several areas where development effort may offer considerable potential for cost reduction are identified.
