Abstract:

This handbook is a fourth edition of one printed early in 1979 for use as a training aid. The content has been revised considerably to Respond to experience gained during the training process and Directly support the requirements of MIL-P-24534A Navy. THe purpose of this handbook is to introduce you to the ideas about preventive maintenance program design that are the foundation for the method called Reliability-Centered Maintenance RCM. Applying RCM requires an understanding of these ideas. Specific application also requires an understanding of each ship system, its failures, and the impact of these failures. RCM does not presume that hardware needs preventive maintenance but uses knowledge about systems, their functions, and their failures to identify applicable and effective preventive maintenance tasks.
