The examples for citations says MLA is used but there are quite a few differences  between the updated MLA we use and your examples. I have tried to use the examples sent. ook over the citations very carefully as I cannot guarantee their accuracy  with your guidelines. It also looks like you have a program to create a lifecycle analysis - "NAFA Lifecycle Cost Analysis software program." Since we do not normally perform any  type of statistical analysis or provide real data, I have included a cost comparison along the lines of your model and leave the excel spreadsheet with formula up to you.  Good luck.] Table of Contents Subject Page Number Executive Summary Statement of the Problem Method of Approach List of Issues for Analysis 1.
