System for Utilization of Remote Equipment for Failure Investigation and Reliability Evaluation (Surefire) 700607
This paper identifies the automated reliability data input, storage, processing, retrieval and output system developed by Information Systems and the Reliability and Effectiveness Evaluation Components of the General Electric Company, Re-entry and Environmental Systems Division. The system incorporates remote terminal inquiry, real time, time-sharing capability. Data batch processing service is provided as required for periodic EDP report outputs and customer contract reports. The system output features include failure history information, test history (time/cycle data) information, narrative management report capability and reliability numerical evaluation and assessment output reports. The approach to system development is defined and discussed. Adherence to the philosophy of providing working paper rather than paper work is developed and applied in this automated reliability data system.
