Typical Evaluation of repetitive defects includes the following:
· No Fault Found (NFF). NFF occurs when a system is tested after a fault is reported but the fault is not replicated during the test.
· Rogue Units. A rogue unit is a single serialized line replaceable unit (LRU) that has demonstrated a history of identical system faults which may or may not result in an exceedance of an operator’s defined number of repetitive unscheduled removals within an associated short service life.
· Chronic Units. A chronic unit is a single serialized LRU that has demonstrated a history of different system faults resulting in an exceedance of an operator’s defined number of repetitive unscheduled removals within an associated short service life.
· Chronic Systems/Aircraft. A chronic system or aircraft is identified by a specific aircraft serial number that has demonstrated a history of repetitive unscheduled maintenance defects within the same system/subsystem during an operator-defined period of time.
MCC heavily manages the oversight of the maintenance and many options in between for example – work package assignment to maintenance, repair, and overhaul organisations (MROs) and aircraft on ground (AOG) spares supply. Again multiple solutions based on the organisations constraints
