1 Factors taken into account in estimating electronics reliability. Typical failure rates for electronic parts are discussed later in this chapter, but it must be emphasized that these are given as a guide only. , and will change with any alteration in materials or processing employed in the manufacture of the component, hence the necessity of continually up-dating failure rates. Some values of MTBF are given on page 28. The number of component parts used varies widely. For a television set 200 to 400 parts may be used, for a large computer 250 000 to 500 000, while for space operations such as a manned moon mission up to 15 million parts may be required; many of these are now combined in the form of integrated circuits, or 'chips'.

Good maintainability is just as important for routine maintenance as it is for repair, since maintenance can also represent a period of non-availability which must be made as short as possible. Maintenance involves making a number of check measurements, or taking specified action such as lubrication, at particular points in the equipment or machine. It is essential that these points are easily accessible and are so situated that the required action can be easily taken. The check points must not be put in positions dictated by the physical design of the equipment rather than in the best position for maintenance.

Planned maintenance Planned maintenance normally involves a series of regular checks including the replacement of components that may be reaching the end of their working fives. A good example of this process is that which relates to the routine servicing of a motor car. Tyres, brakes, steering, lighting and lubrication fluids are often checked at a service interval (check cycle) of 4500, 5000 or 6000 miles. Clutch, gearbox, transmission, and other major items may be checked at a longer service interval (check cycle) of either 9000, 10 000 or 12 000 miles.
