Role of Aircraft Feedback Information in Developing Maintainability Allocation Index

W. M. S. Wan Husain
Abstract—This paper present attempt to utilise aircraft maintenance historical data and information and author termed as Aircraft feedback information systems. Aircraft feedback information contains various types of information that could be used for future improvement rather than just the failure elements. Literature shows that feedback information reports have helped to identify the critical and sensitive components that need more attention for further improvement. This paper consists of two elements. The first element is to present different types of Aircraft feedback information and the second element is a methodology in developing the processes of maintainability allocation. 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 the combinations between the historical data information and maintainability allocation have the ability to contribute 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.

Index Terms—Aircraft maintenance, aircraft information systems, historical data, maintainability allocation.
