Demand is increasing in aero-engine products for better efficiency and environmental performance whilst keeping the cost low. Unlike performance, the physics behind cost is least understood. This paper presents a proposed unit cost modelling methodology applied to a Rolls-Royce aero-engine fan blade. An objective of the cost model is the allow engineers to understand the breakdown of cost. A value driven design concept is outlined and presents an opportunity to conduct design optimisation.
