The student will learn the approach to implement system reliability-centered maintenance, RCM, to include developing an understanding of critical part failure on the demand function for system sustainment through qualitative and quantitative reliability, maintainability and availability analysis to select the appropriate RCM path (condition-based maintenance, CBM, time-directed maintenance, TDM, and stress-directed maintenance, SDM).
