Abstract : Variables used in Volume I, Study Results, which are of the type heavily influenced by management philosophy, available resources, etc., are investigated for their effect on problem identification test costs. Cost optimizations of bench test versus flight test were performed at 126 data points. In particular, the variables studied are: MTBR off-the-board, corrective action efficiency, test effectiveness, and test operating time/calendar time, MTBR off-the-board and corrective action efficiency are identified as the variables which can heavily influence the problem identification test costs.
