The Reliability, Maintainability, and Supportability Partnership (RMSP) organization's goal is to enhance communication, coordination and collaboration between industry, academia and government in a manner that will encourage individuals and organizations to adopt an integrated systems engineering approach, or end-to-end management approach, when addressing RMS issues. The RMS Partnership also encourages individuals, professional societies, and industry associations to develop, use and maintain world-class RMS non-government standards. The RMS Partnership publishes a quarterly newsletter which is freely available on the web site. Membership in the RMS Partnership is open to individuals and organizations interested in being on the cutting edge of RMS issues and initiatives both nationally and internationally.
The RMSP serves as a global advocate for the embedding of the RMS principles and disciplines throughout the total life cycle of existing and emerging systems hardware and software (from concept development and design through manufacturing, operations, maintenance, support and redesign, remanufacturing, and/or disposal). Our goal is to ensure that the system engineering process is a holistic approach that addresses the ilities such as RMS and logistics early on, during, and throughout the total life cycle.
To help promote and achieve these goals the RMSP engages in a number of outreach activities that have as their primary objective leader and practitioner education and training. Among these activities are: Government-Industry conferences that are workshop-intensive, publication of the quarterly RMS Partnership Newsletter with content that focuses on introducing state-of-the-art technologies, programs, policies, and procedures. In addition the RMS Partnership offers RMS&L courses at customer facilities and in conjunction with quarterly conferences. Consulting services are also available on-line, at customer facilities, and by telephone or a combination of each.
