Abstract:

The logic tree diagrams have been prepared for several systems, such as the F-106 fire control systems. They have been well received by technicians but are more expensive to prepare than conventional technical orders. Moreover, these manually prepared diagrams were generated on the basis of expert engineering judgment. This paper discusses a computerized technique for optimizing the decision logic for a troubleshooting tree. Input requirements are outlined, and problems associated with these input parameters are reviewed. Approaches to surmounting these difficulties are suggested. If these suggested approaches demonstrably remove recognized input problems, methods can be recommended for documenting design analyses in a manner which greatly facilitates the production of either advanced performance aids or the specification of test sequences to be automated.
