Already in the early s, the conventional propeller engine planes flying at 10, feet altitudes and miles per hour were being succeeded by jets at 30, feet and speeds of miles per hour. The accident rate was considered intolerable. Stanley Nowlan, on a team with Howard Heap, wasresearching the failure and accident causes on airflights. That research leadto reliability centered maintenance RCM in the airflight industry report.

Industrial Press Inc. Reliability-centered Maintenance. John Moubray. Initially developed by the aviation industry, RCM is rapidly becoming fundamental to the practice of maintenance management and is now in use at hundreds of industrial and service organizations around the world. This book provides an authoritative and practical explanation of what RCM is and how it can be applied. It is of vital importance to anyone concerned with productivity, quality, safety, and environmental integrity.
Written by an expert in the field who has helped users apply RCM and its more modern derivative, RCM2, at more than sites in 32 countries.
The second edition includes more than pages of new material on: condition monitoring the analysis of functions and failures human error the management risk failure finding the measurement maintenance performance. Functional Failures. Failure Consequences. Preventive Tasks. Predictive Tasks. Other Default Actions.
Implementing RCM Recommendations. Actuarial Analysis and Failure Data. Applying the RCM Process. What RCM Achieves. Condition monitoring. Human error.
Reliability-centred Maintenance is a process used to determine - systematically and scientifically - what must be done to ensure that physical assets continue to do what their users want them to do. Widely recognised by maintenance professionals as the most cost-effective way to develop world-class maintenance strategies, RCM leads to rapid, sustained and substantial improvements in plant availability and reliability, product quality, safety and environmental integrity. The author and his associates have helped users to apply RCM and its more modern derivative, RCM2, on more than sites in 32 countries. These sites include all types of manufacturing especially automobile, steel, paper, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and food manufacturing, utilities water, gas and electricity , armed forces, building services, mining telecommunications and transport.
Reliability-centered maintenance RCM is a concept of maintenance planning to ensure that systems continue to do what their user require in their present operating context. It is generally used to achieve improvements in fields such as the establishment of safe minimum levels of maintenance, changes to operating procedures and strategies and the establishment of capital maintenance regimes and plans. Successful implementation of RCM will lead to increase in cost effectiveness, machine uptime, and a greater understanding of the level of risk that the organization is managing. John Moubray characterized RCM as a process to establish the safe minimum levels of maintenance. This starts with the seven questions below, worked through in the order that they are listed:.
