Abstract:

A sample of over 61,000 maintenance reports was analyzed with respect to frequency of use of the how-malfunctioned codes. Approximately negative-exponential distributions of reported code frequencies were found, with the single most frequently used code accounting for 28.8 of all reports, the two most frequent codes accounting for 38.4, and five codes accounting for 50.2. 50 of the work centers used nine or fewer codes. The results of this study lend support to the desirability of substituting a mnemonic code for the current how-malfunctioned coding system. Modified author abstract
