This may include demilitarization, detoxification, long-term waste storage, and environmental restoration and related costs. A product or system may be retired or disposed of prior to the end of its useful life, in which case it may be sold, with the proceeds returned to the Treasury. Alternatively, components and materials of the product or system may have residual value that can be captured to offset disposal costs. While we list Disposal as a fourth phase here, the costs of Disposal are sometimes included in the O&S cost phase.

A single number representing what the cost is estimated to be), it is also true that this point estimate is sensitive to the underlying assumptions that were made as part of the analysis. In fact, there are several numbers, probably even a range of numbers that could have been designated as the point estimate, if we had made different assumptions. It is, therefore, important 14 • • • • CHAPTER 2 Introduction to Cost Estimating that in presenting a cost estimate, that we point out these sensitivities, along with their impacts on the point cost estimate.
