Abstract : This paper presents two techniques to be used with the generalized electronics maintenance model to facilitate system design by minimizing maintenance support cost. The methods developed can be used to optimally allocate modules to components with the lowest life cycle cost being the criteria for optimality. The computer techniques presented requires a good working knowledge of the GEMM model. In addition to a description of the techniques presented, an example of each method is given to illustrate the input requirements and output generated. (Author)
