The total number of parts used has a bearing on reliability, as obviously an equipment with 2000 parts will have a higher failure rate than one with 200 similar parts assuming they are operated under comparable conditions. 1. 1 Factors taken into account in estimating electronics reliability. Typical failure rates for electronic parts are discussed later in this chapter, but it must be emphasized that these are given as a guide only.

Every equipment has to be controlled by a human operator. If the equipment does not perform its specified function, the result is a failure or lack of reliability. To be reliable equipments must, therefore, be so designed that the probability of the operator making an error is as small as possible, and this characteristic is called Operability. To produce a design best suited to a human operator we must know the relevant facts about human capabilities and limitations. e. the study of man in relation to work.

One of the most important contributions to good maintainability is a wellplanned maintenance and repair manual, since this will often be the only available guide to the way the equipment works, and if information is not clearly presented, lengthy delays can result. It must be written with its purpose, and the conditions in which it will be used, firmly in mind. Thus constant page turning to refer to diagrams or tables of values must be avoided, and some guide to step-by-step fault tracing should be included.
