Short Desciption:
Condition Monitoring (CM) technologies, such as vibration analysis, infra-red thermal imaging, and ultra-sonic flaw detection along with many others have been widely used for detecting eminent equipment failures in various industries. Some applications have been more successful than others. While CM technologies are founded in sound scientific practice and usually display proven track records, their application must be administered through best business practice and value added efforts. The Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) methodology lends itself fully to the application of the correct maintenance procedure being conducted at the correct time and by the correct person(s). The reader will discover how the RCM analysis not only advises the administration of the correct technology, but also the acceptable interval for the inspection. Also discussed, are the economic considerations of the CM technologies as part of the RCM analysis, allowing the user to investigate the level of expertise required to produce acceptable results for a given technology.

Summary:
It seems that each year, large capital investments are made into the latest technologies, with minimal thought given to an effective applications program. Often times, this, results in a substandard return on investment. This paper depicts the increased effectiveness of CM technologies when integrated with an appropriately developed RCM analysis. Such integration avoids duplication of effort and misapplication of CM technologies, ensuring inspection efforts are directed at pre- determined failure mode and consequence mitigation. CM technologies are excellent tools for identifying potential failures. As tools they need to be applied in the right circumstances and only when necessary. The RCM process is designed to identify those circumstances and to determine when they are necessary.
