Abstract:

The report contains an analysis of the maintenance data collected as part of the F-15 Category II test program from April 1974 through February 1975 with the intent of updating operations and maintenance cost predictions. A brief review of the Systems Effectiveness Data System is included to provide background on the source of the raw maintenance data. This is followed by an analysis of maintenance man-hours per flight hour MMHFM trends based on regression analysis to determine the expected operational maintenance requirements. Failure data are analyzed to determine system and subsystems reliability. Two reliability models are used for this analysis an exponential model which assumes a constant instantaneous failure rate, and a Weibull model which can represent either an increasing or a decreasing failure rate.
