Abstract:

Ten new concepts of electronics maintenance are described and analyzed in this report. These concepts differ from the conventional approach in that they advocate an equipment analysis for troubleshooting be made once by experts, then transmitted to the repairman, with appropriate supporting data, to obviate the need for repeated analyses by maintenance personnel on the job. Evidence from experimental evaluations of some of the concepts indicates the potential for marked increases in proficiency andor decreases in training time as compared to current practice. Comparative evaluation of these concepts should consider system-wide implications rather than any single index, such as reduced training time or cost of preparation of manuals. It would appear that some maintenance situations would be best served by a combination of features from several of the new approaches in other cases it is possible that one of the concepts is uniquely suited to the particular circuitry or equipment configuration.
