A RAM program is a structured methodology to identify and deliver the reliability, availability, and maintainability(RAM) requirements of a power plant in the most cost-effective manner. This document is an assurancestandard to govern the master planning process for a power plant RAM program. It is intended to provide amethodology to develop and implement a comprehensive availability assurance program for the design, construction, and operation phases of the RAM project. This Standard is applicable to both new and existing facilities.
This Standard provides the requirements to establish a RAM program for any power-generation facility. Theprogram process includes
(a) establishment of RAM goals
(b) requirements for design, construction and commissioning, and operations
This Standard identifies the required RAM program elements and responsibilities.
The purpose of this Standard is to meet the owner’spower plant RAM performance goals. This Standardidentifies program requirements that support effectivereliability processes in design, construction and commissioning,and operations. It requires a risk-basedapproach to design and provides requirements to optimizeperformance effectively throughout the life cycleof the power plant.
