Control for Maintainability in Aerospace Fluid Power Systems 640593
The cost of Department of Defense maintenance coupled with the need for improved maintenance in many aerospace activities has resulted in large changes to the approach of maintainability.
For hydraulic controls and systems for airborne vehicles, recent procedures have been instituted which put special and continued emphasis on maintainability from the inception of a program and not as an after-the-fact operation.
These changes have resulted in detailed improvements in maintainability through both procedural and component design improvements. This has resulted in marked field improvements, ease of maintenance and improved operational times.
