A desktop virtual reality‐based integrated system for complex product maintainability design and verification
Article publication date: 28 September 2010
Maintainability is the ability of a product system to be maintained and is a design characteristic. The paper aims to provide an integrated system for complex product maintainability design and verification. It includes processes and tools that can be effectively used to plan, quantify and cost maintenance.
An integrated platform for maintainability design and verification is designed. A case‐based reasoning method of maintainability design and Extensible Markup Language‐based representation of maintenance procedure information are presented.
The paper finds that the proposed system is an efficient tool for complex product maintainability design and verification.
Early and effective planning and implementation of a maintainability program can significantly improve the reliability and availability of product system.
A desktop virtual reality application for product maintainability design and verification is presented.
