Besides impairing performance and producing fatigue, extreme conditions can even lead to physical collapse. Temperatures inside a vehicle or aircraft parked in the open may be considerably higher than those outside. In a hot and humid environment it is more than ever necessary to ensure that all maintenance operations which may have to be carded out are the simplest possible, and that there is a good system of part identification, that access is easy, and that parts can be quickly detached and replaced.
In reliability, the average period an item will function without failure is most often represented by the mean time between failures (MTBF). But there is no certainty that it will not fail before the end of this period; it might fail within a much shorter period, or perhaps run for longer without failure. But as with our marbles, the longer we go on, the more likely is our probability to prove true taken over the whole period; that is to say, if an item is run for a period which is long compared with its MTBE the more likely is the MTBF to represent the true average period between failures.
One of the most valuable features in a Maintainability 51 maintenance and repair manual is a list of the failures which experience has shown are most likely to occur, together with their symptoms and the method of repair; such information can often save a great deal of time. Maintenance must never involve 'poking about' inside an equipment, moving connecting cables, displacing parts, and perhaps even undoing or unsoldering parts. Experience has shown that such attempts to see if failures can be anticipated does far more harm than good, since interference with the working parts is likely to introduce an element of unreliability by creating conditions leading to failure.
