The ASENT Maintainability toolkit has been optimized to reduce
data entry and maximize the use of existing reliability data to help you
efficiently manage the maintainability analysis process. All necessary tools are
included to assist in your analysis. The product tree structure and reliability
prediction data is readily available in ASENT’s Maintainability toolkit, but you
can quickly and easily add covers or other hardware often excluded from
Both Corrective and Preventive Maintenance
analyses are supported. ASENT calculates maintenance times (both mean and
maximum, e.g., MTTR and MMaxCT) and outputs the result in both minutes and
Organizational, intermediate, and depot levels of
repair are fully supported for procedures II and V of MIL-HDBK-472. The tool’s
powerful “what-if” mode instantly models the impact of various design and
maintenance tradeoffs in real time.
ASENT’s built-in task libraries (MIL-HDBK-472 and
RADC-TR-84-165) greatly reduce the time spent entering data. Also, since
replacement tasks are often the same as remove tasks, only listed in reverse
order, ASENT allows you to enter these with a single click
of the mouse.

The tasks are then automatically entered and the
appropriate task times are pulled from ASENT’s built-in task time libraries.
When you combine this information with customizable Task Libraries, and the
ability to enter Judgments as difficulty factors for working in hard-to-reach or
adverse conditions, you get a powerful combination of maintenance planning
ASENT provides you the capability to generate groups
of tasks, detailed at a lower level and used as a single line item at higher levels.
This prevents your documentation from becoming unwieldy. For example, a task group
could represent an engine repair, which contains many individual tasks. This task
group could be used on many different predictions, but if changes are needed, you
only need to modify the engine repair task group in one location and everything else
is now up-to-date.
Inherent, achieved, and operational availability
are calculated as part of the analysis and are prominently displayed, along with
other analysis results on the prediction results screen. With ASENT, the analysis results are consolidated on one easy-to-read
page, so the affect on your system can be quickly determined.
The Maintainability tool comes with an extensive
suite of reports. ASENT’s comprehensive reporting allows you to quickly slice
the data, so that you can view just the information you want. The convenient
Excel format makes it particularly easy to incorporate outputs into customer
Prediction results at a glance, built-in task
time libraries and images, a familiar spreadsheet interface, the flexibility to
add judgments and difficulty factors, and extensive modeling capabilities all
help put ASENT’s Maintainability Toolkit into a class by itself.
