LOG 104 Module 1 Exam RAM as a Key Element of Production Support Complete Solution
1. The Systems Engineering Process drives which of the following?
•... [Show More] The availability of a system once all countermeasures are incorporated
• Activities to design reliability and supportability into the system
• Cost allocation process through each life cycle phase
• The initial estimate on Total Ownership Cost
2. Which of the following describes reliability?
• The time to determine the cause of a failure
• The probability of a successful year
• The time to failure
• A product support element
3. The purpose of reliability and maintainability (R&M) engineering is to influence system design in order to increase mission capability, and decrease logistics burden and cost over a system’s cycle
4. Which of the following describes availability?
• The amount of time a system is operational at regular, fixed intervals
• The ability of a system to operate as intended each time it’s used
• The ease and economy of time and resources with which an item can be retained or restored to a specific condition
• The measure of the degree to which an item is in an operational state
5. Operational suitability is defined as “the degree to which a system can be placed satisfactorily in field use,” with consideration given to which of the following factors? (Select the three alternatives that apply)
6. Which of the following describes design interface?
• Links both the systems engineering and product support communities in terms of how the design impacts performance and product support
• Drives the activities in the Supportability Analysis process
• Impact some, but not all, of the Integrated Product Support (IPS) Elements
• is aligned with, but not specifically identified as an Integrated Product Support (IPS) Elements
7. It is the job of the Program manager, working with the systems engineering, reliability and maintainability engineering, safety engineering, and logistics disciplines, to eliminate or mitigate hazards and ensure safety, while remaining cognizant of cost
8. The Business Case Analysis (BCA) process is used to assist in identifying the life cycle sustainment strategy that provides the optimum balance between warfighter capabilities and affordability.
9. Mean Time Between Demand (MTBD) includes both preventive maintenance and corrective maintenance task events and times.
10. Maintainability is defined as "the relative ease and economy time and resources with which an time can be retained in or restored to a specified condition when maintenance is performed by personnel having specified skill levels, using prescribed procedures and resources, at each prescribed level of maintenance and repair.
11. The key elements in the definition of reliability are:
• Probability, Satisfactory Performance, Time, Specified Operating Conditions
12. Mathematical models based on the Poisson Distribution have been developed to calculate the number of spares required to support a defined level of Availability.”
13. The focus of Sustainment Maturity Level (SML) concept to assess the sustainment strategy development and implementation status towards achieving Full Operational Capability (FOC) and, where applicable, determining the risk associated with achieving the sustainment key performance parameters (KPP)?
14. The achievement of Sustainment Maturity Level 5 (SML5) during the Technology Maturation and Risk Reduction (TMRR) phase (Pre-Milestone B) reflects the incorporation of supportability design features as design requirements required to achieve the Sustainment Metric KPP/KSA?
15. When are reliability, availability, and maintainability (RAM) evaluated to determine whether the system achieved the set Sustainment Maturity Levels (SMLs)?
• During each phase of the system's life cycle. [Show Less]
