This part of IEC 60300 provides guidelines for the development of an initial preventive maintenance programme for equipment and structures using reliability centred maintenance (RCM) analysis techniques. References to a maintenance programme in this standard implies that it is a preventive maintenance programme.
This application guide is an extension of IEC 60706-4. Those maintenance activities recommended in IEC 60706-4 which relate to preventive maintenance may be implemented using reliability centred maintenance methodology.
RCM analysis can be applied to items such as a ground vehicle, ship, power station, aircraft, etc, which are made up of equipment and structure, e.g. a building, airframe or ship's hull. Typically an equipment comprises a number of electrical, mechanical, instrumentation or control systems and subsystems which can be further broken down into progressively smaller groupings, as required.
RCM techniques specifically applicable to structures are given in annex A.
This standard is restricted to the application of RCM techniques and does not include aspects of maintenance support, which are covered by other standards in the IEC 60706 series.
