Abstract

In this study the author goes through with the analysis of a cost model developed for Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) activities. By means of ANOVA the evaluation of impact and interaction among cost drivers is done. The predominant importance of organizational factors compared to technical ones is definitely demonstrated. Moreover the paper provides researcher and practitioners with useful information to improve the cost model as well as for budgeting and financial planning of ILS activities.
