Implementation of a comprehensive life-cycle RCM program requires detailed knowledge of several very specialized R&M engineering techniques. These techniques include :
  • Reliability allocation and prediction

  • Maintainability allocation and prediction

  • Failure mode analyses including the fault tree analysis (FTA) and the failure mode, effects and criticality analysis (FMECA) procedures

  • Reliability testing

  • Production, storage, and operations and maintenance (O&M) control

  • Environmental stress screening (ESS)
