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 600 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. This book summarises this experience in the form of an authoritative and completely practical description of what RCM2 is and how it should be applied. The second edition has been comprehensively revised to incorporate the most recent developments in this field. It includes more than 100 pages of new material on condition monitoring, the analysis of functions and failures, human error, the management of risk, failure-finding and the measurement of maintenance performance. This book will be of immense value to maintenance managers, and to anyone else concerned with the reliability, productivity, safety and environmental integrity of physical assets. Its straightforward, plant-based approach makes the book especially well suited to use in centres of higher education. John Moubray, BSc (Mech Eng), spent his early career developing and implementing maintenance management systems, first as a plant engineer then as a consultant. In the early 1980s, he began to focus on the industrial application of RCM under the guidance of the late F Stanley Nowlan. In 1986, he set up Aladon Ltd, a consulting and training company based in Lutterworth, UK. He is currently managing director of Aladon, which specialises exclusively in the development of reliability-centre management processes and their application to physical assets.

"What's more, August's book translates RCM into terms and language for the everyday maintenance practitioner. While other RCM texts emphasize the original aerospace process, this text addresses the needs of electric power professionals - day-to-day work performance, repair/rework decisions, prioritizing work time, and running facilities."--Jacket.

To be able to compete successfully both at national and international levels, production systems and equipment must perform at levels not even thinkable a decade ago. Requirements for increased product quality, reduced throughput time and enhanced operating effectiveness within a rapidly changing customer demand environment continue to demand a high maintenance performance. In some cases, maintenance is required to increase operational effectiveness and revenues and customer satisfaction while reducing capital, operating and support costs. This may be the largest challenge facing production enterprises these days. For this, maintenance strategy is required to be aligned with the production logistics and also to keep updated with the current best practices. Maintenance has become a multidisciplinary activity and one may come across situations in which maintenance is the responsibility of people whose training is not engineering. This handbook aims to assist at different levels of understanding whether the manager is an engineer, a production manager, an experienced maintenance practitioner or a beginner. Topics selected to be included in this handbook cover a wide range of issues in the area of maintenance management and engineering to cater for all those interested in maintenance whether practitioners or researchers. This handbook is divided into 6 parts and contains 26 chapters covering a wide range of topics related to maintenance management and engineering.

A completely revised and updated edition of a bestseller, Maintenance, Replacement, and Reliability: Theory and Applications, Second Edition supplies the tools needed for making data-driven physical asset management decisions. The well-received first edition quickly became a mainstay for professors, students, and professionals, with its clear presentation of concepts immediately applicable to real-life situations. However, research is ongoing and relentless—in only a few short years, much has changed. See What’s New in the Second Edition: New Topics The role of maintenance in sustainability issues PAS 55, a framework for optimizing management assets Data management issues, including cases where data are unavailable or sparse How candidates for component replacement can be prioritized using the Jack-knife diagram New Appendices Maximum Likelihood Estimated (MLE) Markov chains and knowledge elicitation procedures based on a Bayesian approach to parameter estimation E-learning materials now supplement two previous appendices (Statistics Primer and Weibull Analysis) Updated the appendix List of Applications of Maintenance Decision Optimization Models Firmly based on the results of real-world research in physical asset management, the book focuses on data-driven tools for asset management decisions. It provides a solid theoretical foundation for various tools (mathematical models) that, in turn, can be used to optimize a variety of key maintenance/replacement/reliability decisions. It presents cases that illustrate the application of these tools in a variety of settings, such as food processing, petrochemical, steel and pharmaceutical industries, as well as the military, mining, and transportation (land and air) sectors. Based on the authors’ experience, the second edition maintains the format that made the previous edition so popular. It covers theories and methodologies grounded in the real world. Simply stated, no other book available addresses the range of methodologies associated with, or focusing on, tools to ensure that asset management decisions are optimized over the product’s life cycle. And then presents them in an easily digestable and immediately applicable way.
