    Reliability Centered Maintenance started when a preventative maintenance plan were developed for the Boeing 747 airplane in the 1960’s by the maintenance steering group. In the RCM process in maintenance not only ‘what can be done’ is considered but also ‘why should it be done’. To facilitate the RCM process seven questions should be asked to complete the process. • What are the functions and performance standards of the asset in the operating environment? • How does the asset fail to perform its intended function? • What cause each functional failure? • What happens to the process when each failure occurs? • How does each failure affect the process and how does it matter? • What can be done to predict and prevent each failure? • What can be done if the relevant proactive task cannot be done (Tinga, 2013)? The first five steps in the process are the Failure Mode, Effect and Criticality Analysis (FMECA). The last two steps are where the failure mechanism is established and the suitable maintenances task is identified and allocated to the relevant activity to perform effective maintenance (Tinga, 2013).
