Abstract : The theory of tests as used in a multi-level repair process is discussed, and procedures for reviewing and improving tests are reviewed. The approaches suggested are primarily applicable to items where wear out is not the predominant failure mode, and the basic maintenance approach is the isolation and replacement of failed parts rather than complete overhaul. The theory was developed in conjunction with test improvement efforts at the Aerospace Guidance and Metrology Center in Newark, Ohio where inertial guidance systems receive depot repair. (Author)
