Reliability Based Maintenance (RBM) programs are commonplace in the Aviation, Power Generation and Chemical / Petrochemical industries. In these sectors, Equipment Failure is not an option. The Industrial / Manufacturing sector(s) have not fully embraced the RBM concept and for the most part routinely suffer loss of production output and the subsequent loss of revenue associated with equipment failures. Two of the Key Elements to the successful implementation of the RBM process in the Industrial / manufacturing sector(s) is the establishment of Reliability and Maintainability Specification and a viable Machinery / Equipment Lubrication and General Preventive Maintenance Program. This Paper will outline procedures for establishing an RBM Program. Methods to evaluate the results will be outlined as well.
