The methodology utilizes recorded maintenance data at NASA Kennedy Space Center (KSC) and other locations. Cost-benefit metrics are used to evaluate the effectiveness of candidate changes for risk reduction. Collateral damage to wiring is a significant contributor to wire failures, as well as defective workmanship, operational degradation and improper vendor installation practices. Aging phenomena...
