From this the total maintenance man-hours in a given period can be calculated. The total repair man-hours can be derived in a similar way, but it is necessary to time the carrying out of various repairs and to make a reasonably accurate estimate of the failure rates of various parts, so as to establish how often each repair will be needed within the given period. 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.

The first system is the one most used and the conventional method for expressing the failUre rate of parts is in percentage per thousand hours (%/1000 hours). In some circumstances a failure rate of the number of failures in 109 component hours (a FIT) is used. 1. 1 Part Transistors Diodes Connectors Resistors Capacitors Switch Relay Sockets Potentiometers Transformers Failure rate 09 % per 1000 hours No. 73% per 1000 hours of operation. 73 out of 100 parts may be expected to fail. 73 26 810 hours.

For instance, in the case of vehicles, ships, aircraft and equipment used by the Armed Forces, conditions may vary from below freezing to tropical temperatures accompanied by high humidity. Cold reduces human efficiency, chiefly because of the bulk of the additional clothing which is required, including gloves, and because of the effects of cold wind on exposed parts of the body. The bulk of additional clothing means that larger access openings are needed to work through, but the most serious effect is often that the use of gJoves impairs the sense of touch, making it more difficult to use the hands.
