Abstract:

Results are presented of the evaluation of the Depot Maintenance Handbook relative to the Corpus Christi Army Depots modernization plans and particularly facility and resource requirements to support the new workload for overhauling, maintaining and inspecting the UH-60, the AH-64, the CH-47D, and OH-58D aircraft. The objective of this part of the investigation was to judge the adequacy of criteria and guidelines currently incorporated into the subject handbook based on review of the new workload and to provide additional criteria and standardized repair guidelines, as necessary. A description is also provided of the updated Data Analysis, Reporting and Documentation System DARDS including its operating procedures and NDIACE output products. The objective of this part of the effort was to develop and implement DARDS on an IBM PCXT computer. DARDS is used for the analysis, reporting, and documentation of the ACE profile data in order to support AVSCOM depot engineering requirements and internal management services.
