The maintainability of the electrical wiring interconnection system (EWIS) is integral to the longevity of an aircraft. EWIS maintainability affects not only the EWIS itself, but any nearby system whose maintenance access is restricted by the location or function of the EWIS. Thus, high maintainability of the EWIS allows for faster, more efficient, and more precise maintenance of surrounding equipment and systems.
Original aircraft design must comply with EWIS regulations in the development stage to ensure long-term maintainability. It is important to know which regulations apply and which standards to follow when designing an aircraft to determine the appropriate maintenance requirements.
Here we will explore the requirements of some of the more common standards for EWIS maintainability in aircraft design.Read more
