6.2 Program Development (See Fig. 6.2-1)
The program design formalizes a plan to achieve the objectives and goals as detailed in the BOD. The defined information within the RAM program becomes the fundamental foundation for all plant operations and maintenance efforts. Program development includes the elements detailed in paras. 6.2.1 through 6.2.6.
6.2.1 Program Statement. A high-level management statement shall define the requirements for the RAM program and provide the organization direction to implement the RAM program.
6.2.2 Program Goals. The program goals are used to establish measurement criteria to validate requirements. The criteria shall be set in the areas of
(a) safety
(b) reliability
(c) availability
(d) maintainability
6.2.3 Program Organization. An organizational structure shall be designed and established to accomplish the goals of the RAM program. The organization shall provide accountability for achieving the obctives and goals. Functionalk these responsibilities include the following individuals:
(a) Owner. The owner provides requirements to the engineer pertaining to preferences and constraints of the design, and provides oversight to the program during implementation.
(b) Program Manager. The program manager acts as an agent of the owner and is responsible for the program implementation.
(c) Engineer. The engineer develops documents (e.g., drawings and specifications) and provides input for incorporating the availability, reliability, and maintainability requirements established by the owner.
(d) Operator. The operator represents the owner by pnwiding input on preferences and constraints regarding operations and maintenance, and shall be a part of the program development process.
(9)review testing that may be used to determinethe critical equipment status and suitability for contin-ued operation
(10) review inspection practices or overhauls thatare required to periodically assure that the plant willachieve the objectives and goals set forth
(11) review maintenance practices that are requiredto mitigate plant performance risk as identified above
(12) evaluate the cost effectiveness of the proposedoptions
(13)evaluate methods for implementation
14) evaluate methods for program modification(15) fulfill goals as stated in the BOD
6.2.5 Program Manual. A program manual shall bedeveloped to integrate guidance and operations require-ments to achieve the objectives and goals set forth inthe BOD.The program manual is a controlled documentthat addresses operations, maintenance, and costs, andshall include the following:
a) Program Statement, consisting of scope,defini-tions, and objectives and goals.
