Abstract:

In any complex multi-level repair process the interdependence of work performed at one stage on the results achieved at another, together with the multiple feedback loops linking the stages, combine to obscure the influence of any single stage on the success and cost of the repair process as a whole. This thesis describes an analysis of the KT-73 inertial measurement unit Repair Process at the Aerospace Guidance Metrology Center, Newark, Ohio, to determine which major stages in the process were most critical in terms of their effect on the overall average cost of repairing a single inertial measurement unit.
