Abstract : The handbook was developed for the Maintenance Policy and Engineering Division of the Naval Air Systems Command. It presents guideline procedures for evaluating new aircraft quantitative maintainability parameters, establishing weapon system requirements and analyzing component designs. Parts I and II of the handbook address maintenance at both the Organizational and Intermediate levels while Part III is primarily a discussion of component installations at the Organizational level. Part I contains a description of the technical analysis leading to the development of the Maintainability Index Model (MIM). Part II provides instructions for the application of the model for establishing maintainability requirements and evaluating maintainability predictions; it also provides maintainability data on various aircraft and their systems which will aid the user in making procedure adjustments for special aircraft applications. Part III presents quantitative and qualitative information concerning the maintainability attributes of selected maintenance significant component installations. Those installation characteristics that have proven to be effective in expediting or simplifying maintenance are highlighted. The procedures are presented in a sequence to permit analysis for the total aircraft, or down to aircraft system or component level. Design and maintenance engineers can use this information for analyzing new systems and components or those being considered for change.
