Abstract : The report is designed to illustrate how cost savings can result by analyzing reported removal data from fielded Army aircraft. Certain equipment, because of finite life, high cost, or need for intensive management, is classified as reportable for control purposes. The MISS report investigates these components for possible cost savings based upon total elimination of selected failure modes. These modes are chosen because of the percentage of failures they represent and they appear to be feasible Product Improvement Program (PIP) candidates.
