I am looking for a detailed break out of commercial aircraft manufacturing and assembly costs. Any data that estimates costs for a single platform, for multiple platforms, or for general aircraft type (e.g. narrowbody) would be greatly appreciated.
Are you looking for actual dollar quantities, or percentages?
Trolling the financial statements (especially the annual reports) can give you some insight into dollars at the program level. Rule of thumb for percentage breakdown is that 1/3 is engines, 1/3 is avionics, and 1/3 is structure. However, that doesn't tell you how much is parts, how much is assembly, how much is certification, how much is engineering, etc.
