NAVAIR 00-25-403, MANAGEMENT MANUAL: GUIDELINES FOR THE NAVAL AVIATION RELIABILITY-CENTERED MAINTENANCE (RCM) PROCESS (01 JUL 2005)., This manual describes the process used to develop all PM requirements for NAVAIR aircraft, engines, aircrew escape systems, weapon systems, aircraft launch and recovery equipment, and support equipment. Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) is an analytical process to determine the appropriate failure management strategies, including PM requirements and other actions that are warranted to ensure safe operations and cost-wise readiness. This process of developing PM requirements, with an auditable documentation package, is based on the reliability of the various components, the severity of the consequences related to safety and mission if failure occurs, and the cost effectiveness of the task. This manual is the primary guidance document for anyone tasked with implementing an RCM program or performing an RCM analysis on Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) managed equipment. It covers the following subjects: RCM Program Management; RCM Analysis Process; Implementation of Analysis Results, and; RCM Program Sustainment. NAVAIRINST 4790.20 (series), Reliability-Centered Maintenance Program, states that, "The NAVAIR RCM Program is applicable to all new procurement and in-service aircraft, engines, systems (i.e., weapons, aircrew escape systems, avionics, and electrical systems), and Support Equipment (SE) (i.e., avionics support equipment, non-avionics support equipment, and aircraft launch/recovery equipment) including their modification, during all life cycle phases and levels of maintenance. RCM principles shall be applied (as part of the systems engineering process) to ensure safety and cost-wise readiness through determination of appropriate failure management strategies. These strategies ensure the proper balance of preventive maintenance (PM) tasks, prognostics and diagnostics (i.e., predictive and detective sensing devices), corrective maintenance, operational procedures, maintenance improvements, design changes, and training." This manual does not attempt to provide the complete background, history, or philosophy of the RCM process. Various books and training courses are available on the RCM philosophy and its development and applications. A good understanding of the underlying tenets of RCM should be obtained before attempting to implement an RCM program.
