This activity exercised a structured decision process to examine various scenarios for Fault Detection and Dispatch of MX maintenance teams. The effort was the implementation of the design methodology begun earlier. The multiple criterion function structured during FY 80 was updated along with the scenarios . These actions were taken to adjust the analysis from the vertical protective structure basing to the Horizontal Shelter Site (HSS) concept. The study evaluated and ranked 81 candidate systems using 94 variables for each candidate . The results indicated the currently planned system to rank 48th out of 81. Additional results, although preliminary, indicate relatively low levels (25 to 50%) of automatic test equipment to be most effective for the six criteria defined by BMO for this study. Values of the input variables for maximum system effectiveness were defined. A computerized maintenance simulation program (SIMMX) was developed and installed on the computer system used by BMO. This program allows the study of various MX maintenance problems and the examination of these problem effects on multiple cluster system readiness. In addition, initial estimates of maintenance information traffic flow were provided as a result of a preliminary study based on estimated operational requirements and using available data provided by GTE, TRW, MM, and BMO.This activity exercised a structured decision process to examine various scenarios for Fault Detection and Dispatch of MX maintenance teams.
