This panel presentation aims to propose a possible solution for how to evaluate the effect of RCM as a tool for maintenance management. The starting point is a general understanding of the RCM methodology. Further on, a quantitative approach for relating the impact of component maintenance on system reliability and total cost is introduced. The method, referred to as reliability-centred asset maintenance method (RCAM) is being developed within a research group at KTH in Sweden. Finally the presentation comments on ongoing research to evaluate the introduction of RCM. The aim of RCM is to optimize the maintenance achievements in a systematic way.
