Abstract:

This document has been developed by the Naval Ship Engineering Center of the Naval Sea Systems Command to aid in the assurance of adequate levels of Reliability R and Maintainability M of Naval shipboard equipment. It consists of two separate but complementary checklists for reviewing and evaluating a contractors R program and M program with emphasis on the detailed RM design efforts. In addition to the detailed RM design efforts Sections 2 through 11 and 22 through 28 these checklists also cover the areas of RM Management Sections 1 and 21 and RM Demonstration Test Planning Sections 12 and 28. During a program applicable sections of these checklists should be completed and updated as the program progresses. These checklists can be provided to the contractor to be used as guides for establishing and implementing his RM programs, or can be contractually required to be completed by the contractor and submitted as a data item to the Navy prior to formal design reviews. They can be used by the Navy for randomly auditing the contractors RM program, design effort and demonstration test planning effort as guides for evaluating RM during design reviews or used for follow-up of corrective action in areas found to be deficient. Although these checklists were developed for electronic equipment acquisition, the majority of the questions contained therein are equally applicable to electrical, mechanical and electro-mechanical systems and equipment.
