Effectiveness-Based Method for Equipment Maintenance Evaluation

Ruiping HU, Honghua YANG, Beijia HU


In a modern war on the high-tech conditions, an exertion of military equipment effectiveness impacts on results of the war. The quality of equipment maintenance determines the exertion of military equipment effectiveness. The method for equipment maintenance evaluation guides the equipment maintenance. Current equipment effectiveness rests with designing performance and the quality of equipment maintenance. For some homotypical and homocronous equipments used on the same conditions, current equipment effectiveness reflects the quality of equipment maintenance in the past period. An effectiveness-based Method for Equipment Maintenance Evaluation is illuminated by a case of certain equipment. A program for solving problems using this method by computer has being implemented. The rationality, maneuverability and serviceability of this method are satisfactory.

Key words: Equipment effectiveness; Equipment maintenance; Evaluation method


Equipment effectiveness; Equipment maintenance; Evaluation method
