MULTI-DISCIPLINE APPROACH FOR ACHIEVING OPERATIONAL RELIABILITY.
ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS DIV L G HANSCOM FIELD MA TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS AND STAND ARDS OFFICE
Configuration Management, Personnel Subsystem, and Maintainability program requirements are being incorporated as funded line items into system and equipment contractual documents by the Electronic Systems Division ESD. Value Engineering incentive clauses are an additional contractual provision. Each of these disciplines makes specific contributions in the achievement of operational reliability. Incentive provisions for reliability, Contractor Definition Phase, and Life Cycle Cost are contractual arrangements which improve Government-Contractor management interest in reliability. Current ESD reliability demonstration methods will require further revision as increases in system reliability are achieved. Author
