System Improvement Through Maintainability Demonstration 700592
Maintainability demonstration should be based on the whole operational setting. By so doing, and by establishing, beforehand, agreements between the contractor and the customer concerning parameter values and individual responsibilities, maintainability demonstration can be much more effective at influencing system performance. Certain design/use trade-offs become apparent, and both contractor and customer can see the system performance costs of their theretofore implicit assumptions. This contention is illustrated with a maintainability demonstration model for flight-line aircraft maintenance.
