ESTABLISHMENT OF RELIABILITY AND MAINTAINABILITY DATA BANK FOR SHIPBOARD MACHINERY. VOL. I

In recent years there have been considerable advances in methods for the measurement, prediction, and control of reliability, with the main emphasis placed on electronic systems. This report discusses the development and improvement of similar techniques for the mechanical systems in U.S. Navy ships. The procedures and techniques involved are described in this volume. Volume II gives data sheets for a very large number of specific items fitted in U.S. Navy ships; these list the number of units in service, the failure rates, and the reliability and maintainability indices. All these terms are defined in Volume I. Whereas previous studies have usually been concerned with main propulsion machinery, the current work is directed towards auxiliary and deck equipment.
