This Note describes a preliminary and limited set of measures using data from the Air Force Maintenance Data Collection System MDC to identify likely candidates for reliability and maintainability RM improvement. The methods usefulness depends on the users having better than average knowledge of the MDC and of base-level maintenance. The MDC is a large, complex, and rich data system. Its magnitude alone is forbidding. The two-step method described shows how to distill these data, prepare useful metrics, and present these data in useful ways to RM decisionmakers. Site investigations and interviews should be conducted to check the reasons for any high maintenance activity and to understand variability among bases before any RM improvement program is instituted on a particular system or component.
