A program was conducted to develop analysis techniques that would facilitate the tasks of estimating the impact of predicted component reliability and maintainability R and M on an aircraft system in an Army operating environment and evaluating and ranking competing component concepts on the basis of their R and M characteristics. The effort included origination of algorithms that prepare R and M data for Army helicopter operations and maintenance O and M simulation, preparation of an O and M simulation model to investigate component impact in an Army environment, and preparation of a specialized life- cycle-costing approach for ranking competing component configurations on the basis of their relative cost impact considering directly related component costs and changes in aircraftsystem costs attributable to component R and M characteristics.
