Abstract : Although cost has always been a consideration in the selection and use of tests for the repair of avionics, the present widespread use of very expensive avionics has necessitated refinements in testing with the goal of reducing repair costs. The relationship between testing and repair costs is rather complex, and only recently has it come under close scrutiny. It is the purpose of this paper to examine the recent analytic work relating avionics testing to repair costs. This paper covers the most important aspects of this body of research on the relationship between avionics testing and repair costs with the hope that the reader will be able to apply this research to reducing the cost of repairing his own avionics. A summary and list of references is provided at the end of the paper. (Author)
