Preventive maintenance (PM) programs are used in manufacturing plants to help avoid or mitigate the impact of operational failures. This book discusses & evaluates current PM practices, & shows how the reliability-centered maintenance (RCM) method can provide for extremely cost-effective manufacturing. Included is an application of RCM to a swimming pool water treatment system that illustrates the seven basic steps employed in developing RCM-based PM tasks. Also presented is a series of real-world power plant applications that further demonstrate the utility & effectiveness of the methodology. Engineers & plant managers will find detailed instructions for implementing an RCM program in their own manufacturing facilities, plus helpful information on how RCM fits into Total Quality Management (TQM).
