I think I know what I'm suppose to do, but I'm going to post this question for verification anyway. How does one due projections of MTTR, MTBF, LCC, reliability, and maintainability 'cold turkey'? We have no feedback from our Customers, just like Tom, so how does one go about these calculations?

We are (I am) planning on performing these calculations on "critical" components of the machine, as determined by us. This is accpetable to our auditor so this isn't really a problem. My immediate supervisor (VP of Operations and MR) wants to see some examples of how to do the calcualtions before we go ahead with it. If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it a lot.

Thnaks,

Dan

Are people using a 'generic' R & M plan or are they tailoring the R & M plan to each specific job (Customer)?

Any help would be great!
