### LOG 203 Reliability & Maintainability Curriculum Review

Presented by

Tom Simcik, Acquisition Logistics Performance Learning Director

June 26, 2007

1. A car had five maintenance actions in 300 days. What is the mean time between maintenance (MTBM)?:

a. 200 days

b. 300 days

c. 60 days

d. 600 days

2. If the MTBF = x, what is the failure rate?:

a. xe-1

b. x2

c. 1/x

d. x/x

3. The original air conditioning in your 30 year old home breaks. The service technician informs you that the compressor motor is burned out. This is an example of:

a. Latent Defect Failure

b. Random Failure

c. Wear-out Failure

d. Dismal Failure

LOG 203 Reliability & Maintainability

PRE-TEST

DAU LOG’s “assignment specific” course for Reliability and Maintainability personnel. Distance learning format. No prerequisites.

LOG 203 course metrics consistently meeting performance expectations:

Courseware:

Online Delivery:

Learning Efficiency:

Job Impact:

On track for a three-fold increase in students since trough in 2005.

FY08 is a “revision year” . . . >25% of turnover in course content.

\$153K budget request in for 2008

Key Personnel:

Program Director: Tom Simcik, DAU LCIC-LOG

• This course concentrates on reliability and maintainability (R&M) activities, enabling students to understand the relationship between R&M and acquisition logistics and to evaluate the impact of R&M decisions. Stressing a conceptual approach, the course presents basic R&M terminology and engineering practices.
• Approximately 30 hours DL. Students have 60 calendar days to complete.
• Course was developed in 2001. Only minor updates and conversion to LCMS in 2007.
• FY 07 Stats (as of 21 June 07): 515 graduates
• Army (161) - DoD (17)
• Navy (98) - Industry (132)
• Air Force (101) - Fed Gov’t (6)

Current version has 5 lessons:

1. Impacts of R&M on Logistics

2. Operational and Contractual R&M Requirements

3. Providing Insight into Designing for Reliability

4. R&M Risk Reduction

5. Impacts of Manufacturing on R&M

LOG 203 Reliability and Maintainability
Lesson 1: Impacts of R&M on Logistics

Recognize how R&M affects support costs

Recognize how R&M affects Total Ownership Costs

List 4 key elements in the definition of reliability

List two MTB_s that are logistics reliability parameters

Lesson 2: Impacts of R&M on Missions

Distinguish between latent failures, random failures and wearout

Identify three measures of combat capability that are enhanced by good R&M

Distinguish between reliability and maintainability

LOG 203 Reliability and Maintainability
Lesson 3: Operational & Contractual R&M Requirements

List 3 methods for converting operational R&M requirements into contractual R&M requirements

List 3 approaches for assessing the R&M of Commercial and Nondevelopmental Items

Lesson 4: Providing Insight into Designing for Reliability

Identify the reason that failure rates are easier to deal with than MTBFs

Distinguish between mission reliability and logistics reliability

Identify the aim of Reliability Centered Maintenance Analysis

Lesson 5: R&M and Risk Reduction

Recognize the Test-Analyze-and Fix process of achieving reliability growth

Recognize the concept of decision risk in reliability qualification test (RQT)

LOG 203 Reliability and Maintainability

LOG 203 fills a niche requirement in R&M – limited training opportunities elsewhere

A course refresh is needed to update content and latest advancements in the R&M field

Expect continued increase in interest as R&M becomes foundational in program offices – a swing back to government competency

Course will receive more PLD attention in FY08 especially if requested funds are received
