New systems and techniques in aircraft maintenance had to be developed to cope with the rapid increase in workload and the changing nature of aircraft systems, parts, and material.
Some of those that developed were from the science of mathematics dealing with sampling and the improvement of performance reliability and maintenance costs. Science and industry developed new material fabrication and machining techniques that enable us to work with materials that did not exist 10 years ago.
This paper deals with maintenance concepts developed since we acquired turbine aircraft. It mentions a few of the new shop techniques that meet demands of reliability, costs, and new types of materials. It lists some needs of our business in the near future that will enable us to continue moving toward greater dependability and better control of costs.
