Condition Based Maintenance (CBM+) Guidebook

Last Updated : 05/01/2008

​Condition Based Maintenance Plus (CBM+) is the application and integration of appropriate processes, technologies, and knowledge-based capabilities to improve the reliability and maintenance effectiveness of DoD systems and components. At its core, CBM+ is maintenance performed based on evidence of need provided by Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) analysis and other enabling processes and technologies. 

CBM+ uses a systems engineering approach to collect data, enable analysis, and support the decision-making processes for system acquisition, sustainment, and operations. CBM+ supports the larger DoD improvement efforts of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment (USD (A&S)), with the goal of delivering cost-effective joint logistics performance by maximizing weapon system and equipment availability through a more effective logistics process. 

This document is part of an Integrated Product Support Guidebook Suite and serves as an important resource for defense acquisition workforce members to use in crafting and successfully executing life cycle product support and sustainment strategies.
