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, Technology, and Logistics (USD(AT&L)), with the goal of delivering cost-effective joint logistics performance by maximizing weapon system and equipment availability through a more effective logistics process.
