This Standard provides the requirements to establish a RAM program for any power-generation facility. The program process includes
(a) establishment of RAM goals
(b) requirements for design, construction and commissioning, and operations
This Standard identifies the required RAM program elements and responsibilities.
The purpose of this Standard is to meet the owner's power plant RAM performance goals. This Standard identifies program requirements that support effective reliability processes in design, construction and commissioning, and operations. It requires a risk-based approach to design and provides requirements to optimize performance effectively throughout the life cycle of the power plant.
