The objectives of the research were 1 to describe, quantitatively, the impact of remove, test OK occurrences on base level logistic support costs and 2 to derive a model to predict these occurrences in terms of information available prior to system acquisition. Such a model will increase the accuracy of predicted logistic support costs for new or proposed systems. Limiting the scope of the research effort to base level, avionic, line replaceable unit maintenance, the authors selected a sample of 100 units from four aircraft currently in the AF inventory. The analysis reveals that test OK occurrences represent thirty percent of the suspected failures which are removed from the aircraft for repair. Twenty three percent of the manhours consumed to base level avionic maintenance were involved with a test OK unit. Modified author abstract
