This paper develops a cost rate function (CRF) to identify the optimum interval and frequency of inspection and restoration of aircraft's repairable components which are undergoing aging, and whose failures are hidden, i.e. are detectable by inspection or upon demand. The paper considers two prevalent strategies, namely Failure Finding Inspection (FFI), and a combination of FFI with restoration actions (FFI+Res), for both the “non-safety effect,” and the “safety effect” categories of hidden… CONTINUE READING
