The issue of preventive maintenance is examined in conceptual terms, with special attention to the planned inspection portion of the problem, in the belief that the quantitative methods and the engineering aspects will be more readily worked out if a consensus is reached first on fundamental concepts. The problem is an extremely important one for Air Force logistics, because a very large fraction of the Air Force resources in the using commands are expended directly in planned inspections, and also indirectly as a consequence of possible inadequacies in these inspections.
