Module 5: Functions

In this module we’ll review the importance of writing Functions and why it’s the first step in the RCM process. Through the review of three air tanker crashes, we’ll discuss the idea of performance and why it is absolutely critical that the difference between Required Performance and Design Capability is differentiated. We’ll set forth the two types of Functions – Primary and Secondary – and how to classify them as either Evident or Hidden. We’ll learn how to compose Functions and how to document them on the RCM Information Worksheet.
