Course objective:

Gaining knowledge of technical systems effectiveness and integral logistic support to technical systems.

Course contents:

Basic terms. Integral logistic support. Effectiveness of complex technical systems. Life cycle costs. Reliability and models of failure. Repairable systems reliability. Operating availability (readiness). Maintainability. Maintenance models. Norming and management of spare part supplies. Maintenance management.


Individual application of theoretical knowledge of technical systems effectiveness in the field of reliability and in the process of logistic support to complex systems, with a focus on the processes of technical systems maintenance.

Learning outcomes:

Having passed the exam, the student will be able to: 1. Identify reliability and maintainability parameters of technical resources. 2. Solve problems of managing the system of technical resources exploitation. 3. Establish cooperation with designers, manufacturers, users and maintainers in developing, producing and equipping with technical resources adapted for exploitation. 4. Compare and evaluate various technical resources from the point of view of users and maintainers. 5. Apply knowledge of reliability in relation to maintenance costs of a real system on and exploitation processes for which it is responsible. These learning outcomes contribute to the following outcomes of the study programme of aircraft maintenance: -Apply the concept of a quality system in an airline company or an aircraft maintenance organisation. -Apply standard procedures of aircraft maintenance and adjust them with the basic maintenance programme. -Describe and distinguish professional and ethical responsibility of the human factor in aircraft maintenance. These learning outcomes contribute to the following outcomes of the study programme of motor vehicle maintenance: -Describe the features and function of motor vehicle maintenance. - Apply the technological processes of motor vehicle maintenance. - Present a motor vehicle status analysis.
