Abstract:

Maintainability prediction is a design tool that can be used to meet desired maintainability goals during system development and design. Volume I contains the results of a study to develop improved maintainability prediction techniques for use on all major classes of Air Force electronic systems at the equipment level of maintenance. The techniques were developed for application from concept formulation through the detail design phases of system development. A data collection program was conducted to acquire detailed information on maintenance actions performed in the field. The data were analyzed to determine relationships between maintenance design variables and maintenance time. Prediction models were developed for corrective and preventive maintenance time. Predictive relationships between maintenance time and maintenance manhours were also developed. A data base was established for use in future investigation of maintainability.
