Abstract : Suggestions for improving maintenance management by unifying the information system and by integrating the many functions of the team. The suggested innovations are: (1) integration of several manual data acquisition systems around the on-going control of flight-line maintenance; (2) the extension of this integration to allied maintenance functions; (3) use of a computer to generate documents for the management of preplanned activities; (4) integration of other maintenance functions with No. (3); and (5) full use of an on-line computer for further improvement of the real-time function and coordination of several maintenance management functions. These steps are to be viewed as a general guide rather than as a rigid sequence of implementation. (Author)
