Abstract:

During the system engineering process, how does one predict the maintenance Manpower, Personnel, Training, and Safety MPTS consequences of a proposed design before it materializes as a breadbox or mockup This study proposes the use of a baseline comparison with an integral data base that is more sophisticated and powerful than currently available approaches. CAMT would define a set of component task primitives, each common to many maintenance tasks, associated with a common set of maintainer skill and comprehension requirements. Associated with each primitive would be immediately accessible data concerning typical MPTS resources required for adequate primitive performance on a variety of tasks and systems. Methods for task primitive definition were developed, then taken into the field for testing. Task primitives were defined to cover three remove-and-replace tasks in one aircraft maintenance field engines. A literature review showed this approach to be unique. Future studies will address electronic maintenance, data base acquisition, and reliability of the methodology.
