Reliability and Maintainability Guideline for Manufacturing Machinery and Equipment

This guideline is intended to provide a description of reliability and maintainability fundamentals for manufacturing machinery and equipment user and supplier personnel at all operating levels. It embraces the concept of up-front engineering and continuous improvement in the design process for machinery and equipment.

The revision includes information to help implement and clarify the activities necessary to build and employ more reliable machinery and equipment.

The guideline consolidates reliability and maintainability terminology, methodology and procurement language generally accepted by suppliers and users of equipment employed for the manufacture of discrete components. This will help integrate reliability and maintainability concepts when equipment is designed, and contribute to the reduction of maintenance, warranty, and life cycle costs while increasing equipment availability.
