Abstract : A maintainability study on shipboard electronic equipment and systems is described. The summarized results are presented of the program to determine the feasibility of describing the maintainability characteristics of fleet electronic equipment in numerical terms. The purpose of the study was to develop a practical method or procedure for maintainability measurement in advence of equipment production which would have reasonable correspondence with maintainability fleet measurements on equipments under typical operational conditions. The objective was approached through a study of representative equipments in three broad classes: radar, sonar and transmitter. The study concurrently conducted on each equipment included theoretical maintainability predictions and field observations to essentially test the validity of the prediction techniques.
