Little management attention has been paid to inexpensive parts critical to the operation of defense weapons systems that incur large maintenance costs. This Costly Replacement of Inexpensive Parts CRIP concept was analyzed in one instance the G-200 gyroscope bearing of the LN-12 platform. The CRIP concept was supported in the case of the G-200 bearings. These precision instrument bearings did in fact represent an inexpensive part 38 each that was critical to the effectiveness of an aircrafts inertial guidance system and generated high replacement costs when failures occurred.
