Subject: Has DoD Deserted R&M?
Have Reliability and Maintainability Been Deserted by Dod? In the Second Quarter, 1998 issue of the RAC Journal (available on-line at URL ), my article on this subject appeared. The real question is what has motivated the DoD and military services to reduce their staffs dedicated to R&M? Even the Rome Laboratory (now the Air Force Laboratory Information Directorate) has relinquished its R&M role, a role not assumed by any other Air Force organization. What do you think prompted these actions? Do you see similar reductions in the numbers of R&M engineers employed in industry? If so, to what do you attribute these reductions? I really would like to hear your views.
