Abstract:

This engineering guide introduces the design engineer, the development engineer, and the development manager to the fundamental concepts of specifying, quantifying, and testing of a specific level of maintainability, with particular application to Army missile weapons and equipment. Covered in the guide are the fundamental mathematical concepts associated with maintainability, design guidelines to enhance maintainability, the major program requirements, and demonstration techniques. More specifically, a practical method is formulated and presented for applying the fundamental engineering and statistical techniques associated with the technology of maintainability. The techniques presented were chosen from among several alternates. Maintainability Engineering Guide was selected as the title because the discussion is directed primarily toward engineering personnel however, Maintainability Management Guide would be equally appropriate since a large portion of its contents pertain to program management.
