Reliability and Maintainability Design Standards from Readiness-Related Goals 791109
A set of procedures is identified which permits the determination of Reliability and Maintainability design standards for a Naval aircraft weapon system, in terms of readiness-related operational goals. Generalized relationships and specific logic tracks are identified for the principal readiness-related parameters.
The procedures are based on assumptions that the systems being designed will exhibit characteristics consistent with systems currently in operational use by the Fleet. The anticipated ranges of variation for the principal parameters are established by evaluating Fleetwide averages over a wide range of current Naval aircraft systems, considering two reporting periods Fiscal Years 1976 and 1978.
