CBM+ is the DoD’s key initiative for sustaining materiel readiness at best cost. Founded on Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM), CBM+ improves availability and reduces lifecycle cost by minimizing unscheduled maintenance and enabling predictive maintenance. CBM+ turns rich data into information, which drives continuous improvement in sustainment effectiveness and efficiency. This forum will examine CBM+ implementation in DoD and review CBM+ best practices. Discussion will include the techniques, processes, tools, and technologies that comprise the CBM+ strategy and have emerged as key leverage points for shaping future logistics costs, as well as improving readiness and availability.
