Abstract : The Maintenance Resource Prediction Model (MRPM) is a computer system designed to assist in planning and programming maintenance resources, based on the anticipated resource requirements of actual installation facilities, for prediction periods of 1 to 10 yr. This report corrects areas of deficiency in the existing MRPM Database where existing information did not reflect current heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system technology. These areas include chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) change out, gas engine driven cooling, direct-fired absorption cooling, desiccant cooling, evaporative cooling, and heat pumps. The report describes the technologies involved and the items that affect the maintenance requirements, and lists the specific sources of information used to create the spreadsheets that are included as an appendix. The original HVAC portion of the MRPM task database was introduced in USACERL Special Report P-91/21 of May 1991.
