As ou have identified, MTBUM is an acronym for Mean Time Between Unscheduled Maintenance Action. MTBUM is simply the total number of operating hours divided by the total number of unscheduled maintenance events. A description of this metric and related metrics is available in AFOTEC Pamphlet 99-104, Operational Suitability Test & Evaluation, paragraph 220.127.116.11.3. Logistics Reliability. The pamphlet can be viewed on-line at http://web.deskbook.osd.mil/reflib/DAF/007GW/001/007GW001DOC.HTM If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact me.
