Methods for Identifying Part Quality Issues and Estimating Their Cost with an Application Using the UH-60 2014
This research report explores the feasibility of using readily available Army demand and end item maintenance history to identify potential issues with repair part or process quality and estimate their associated incremental costs. The value of this approach is its power to analyze the performance of thousands of parts, and by estimating a cost, prioritize corrective actions for the parts with the highest potential return on investment.
