Abstract : This presentation is a challenging Maintainability (M)Engineering discipline technique which provides a dynamic and simplified method for management visibility of the maintenance action times and frequency of maintenance tasks involved in the establishment of the M quantitative constraints required to be designed into system equipments. The prediction technique is used to develop the M design parameters of means and maximum times and the standard deviation of maintenance times requirements and allocations to be designed into equipments to satisfy the operational mission downtime constraints imposed or desired. The effectivity of the predictions of these basic parameters is shown to be the basic requirements for the establishment of the Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) planning and its associated minimization of the life cycle support costs. The visibility provides a basis for evaluation of the M/ILS demonstrations and the design changes effects on the M constraint requirements. (Author)
