This is a follow up article from last year’s ICONE/POWER Conference in Anaheim discussing the development of the new standard for ASME Codes and Standards Committee for the Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability (RAM) of Power Plants. The standard focuses on the priorities of safety, production, and efficiency, with the objective to create an availability program. This program defines an operating budget that supports an effective maintenance program, which in turn ensures the life span of the reliable equipment. The intent is to establish an industry recognized standard for RAM. Some general concepts of the new standard are presented here.
