Development of Quality Improvement Process based on the Maintenance Data of Weapon Systems Kim, HunGil; Kwon, SeMin; Cho, KyoungHo; Sung, Si-Il;
Purpose: This paper treats the improvement of the quality and reliability of military weapon systems based on the maintenance data. Methods: The proposed method of the data integration and refinement are used to obtain the component reliability information and to find the frequently failed components based on the Pareto analysis. Based on the reliability information and the number of failed component frequencies, the target components of quality improvement are determined and improved by multiple methods such as engineering changes, special meetings, additional training and revising maintenance manuals. Results: Based on the proposed process, we find some components which need to be improved in order to enhance the quality and reliability. Conclusion: A process is developed for improving the quality and reliability of weapon systems. This process will be adopted by various weapon systems to enhance the quality and reliability, as well as reduce military spending.
