  author={A Kianfar and Ferydoon Kianfar},
Purpose – This paper aims to address the capability of reliability‐centered maintenance (RCM), which is a preventive maintenance design tool.Design/methodology/approach – A model named Plant Function Deployment (PFD) is developed, in which the methodology of quality function deployment (QFD) is added to RCM to improve RCM capability in preserving the functions of the plants.Findings – The objective of preserving the plant functions with least resources, in RCM, is attained more efficiently if… CONTINUE READING
