by Jim August

RCM Guidebook: Building a Reliable Plant Maintenance Program is a must-have for those responsible for developing plant maintenance programs.

  • Provides a basic outline of a complex subject
  • Explains how to build a robust maintenance program
  • Includes guidance for engineers and managers on how to keep it simple
  • Provides many real plant examples

Reliability-centered maintenance (RCM) is a risk-management process that is objective, measurable, and systematic as it selects and performs effective preventive maintenance (PM) tasks. This text provides what readers really need -- guidance on how to keep PM development with RCM simple and understandable. This text will appeal to a range of readers, providing a nuts and bolts reference material on practical RCM use. August gives readers a step-by-step explanation of maintenance plan development . He begins with a three primary utility requirements for maintenance optimization, and explains the roles of equipment templates, component failures, workscopes, practical implementation barriers, process considerations, data control, RCM standards, and software applications.

Contents:
  • Introduction
  • RCM Background
  • Generic Templates
  • Applied Templates
  • Component Failure
  • Workscopes
  • Barriers to Practicing RCM
  • Process Considerations
  • Data Control
  • Standards
