Abstract:

This report, contained in two volumes, summarizes the final results achieved in the performance of the maintainability techniques study. The broad objective of this study was the formulation of a maintainability technology applicable to ground electrical systems. Volume I, describes the investigations made to 1 identify factors affecting maintainability, 2 specify maintainability on a quantitative basis, 3 improve design of ground electronic equipment, 4 predict maintainability of electronic systems, and 5 derive trade-offs relating reliability, maintainability, and other system parameters. Particular emphasis is given to the fifth phase of study which was devoted to validation of the prediction technique and the investigation of the electronic maintenance proficiency test. The volume is concluded by noting the current status of maintainability technology and recommending areas for additional research.
