Maintainability Prediction for Aircraft Mechanical Components Utilizing Aircraft Feedback Information
This paper attempts to utilise aircraft maintenance historical data and information for future aircraft design from the perspective of maintanability. Aircraft feedback information contains various types of information that could be used for future improvement rather than just the failure elements. The study shows that the aircraft maintenance related feedback information systems analyses were very useful for deciding maintainability effectiveness; these include planning, organising maintenance and design improvement. There is no doubt that historical data information has the ability to contribute with an important role in design activities. The results also show that maintainability is an importance measure that can be used as a guideline for managing efforts made for the improvement of aircraft components.
