Abstract : This is a brief description of a continuing RAND rsearch effort which is believed to have potential usefulness to commercial and military users of aircraft or missiles. The major purposes of a policy of scheduled or planned replacement for selected components in aircraft or missiles are: increased safety, improved reliability, and where possible, greater economy. The objective of the study is to learn something about the characteristics of a planned replacement policy, so that it is possible to determine when and how to apply it for the most desirable results.
