AUTOMATED RELIABILITY ASSESSMENT PROGRAM

An Automated Reliability Assessment Program (ARAP) was developed for evaluation of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) equipments and systems. The ARAP is a set of procedures and computer programs used to reduce and analyze failure/maintenance data. In addition to reliability parameter estimation, related failure/maintenance characteristics are analyzed including failure modes, maintenance manhours, part replacement/failure rates, and part disposition. The ARAP has been in operation over the past two years and significant benefits in terms of assessment quality, manpower cost, and completion time, have been derived. It is recommended in the report that the ARAP be used to support reliability/maintainability activities at the National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center (NAFEC) and be considered for FAA-wide implementation.
