Reliability Driven Maintenance--Closing the CMMS "Value Gap"? Part Two: Reliability Driven Maintenance

If the cost of failure is low but the cost of maintenance is high, one has to minimize the amount of maintenance required and this may again be best done by waiting for the asset to break before expending any maintenance cost. Where the cost of failure is high and the cost of maintenance is low, one logically has to be more proactive and accept more maintenance cost in order to insure that the asset will not fail.
