Abstract

The reliability of wear/failure data of brake assemblies of a commercial aeroplane (Boeing 737) is analysed using the Weibull model. This model can be effectively integrated into an aviation maintenance facility computerized material requirement planning system to forecast the number of brake assemblies needed for a given planning horizon.
