Preventive maintenance (PM) programs are used in manufacturing plants to help avoid or mitigate the impact of operational failures. This book discusses a evaluates current PM practices, a 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 a effectiveness of the methodology. Engineers a 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).This book discusses aamp; evaluates current PM practices, aamp; shows how the reliability-centered maintenance (RCM) method can provide for extremely cost-effective manufacturing.
