    Preface The purpose of this NASA Reliability Centered Building and Equipment Acceptance Guide is to provide acceptance criteria guidelines for equipment associated with new construction, repair or rehabilitation projects. It serves as a technical reference for design engineers, project and program managers, construction managers and inspectors, quality control personnel, and NASA quality assurance staff to help define the required acceptance requirements. In support of the “forward-thinking” vision that value and cost span the entire life of equipment, NASA embraces the process of Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM). RCM demonstrates tremendous success in not only identifying where equipment failures potentially occur, but also the actions and technologies that could be used to prevent those failures and mitigate the associated risk. Those technologies, commonly called Predictive Testing and Inspection (PT&I), are integral elements of the RCM philosophy. Those same technologies can be used with equal success during acceptance to identify and eliminate latent manufacturing and installation defects. Equipment with such defects would be significantly detrimental to mission success, personnel safety, and overall cost of operations and maintenance. This guide promotes the process of RCM as the foundation for developing acceptance criteria. It contains a description of the methodologies of RCM, and it also contains descriptions of the technologies available for acceptance testing. The expected result is a quality and safe installation, reduced premature failures, and reduced life cycle costs. This Guide does not, nor is it intended to, address all aspects of Traditional and Total Building Commissioning as practiced widely in industry. For these, the user is encouraged to refer to the comprehensive and detailed commissioning guides, criteria and standards, such as those published by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). This Guide supplements the commissioning standards already in place and does not replace those standards. The practices and standards contained herein are to be used in conjunction with traditional process parameters to inspect, test and accept facilities and equipment installations prior to the contractor's departure from the site. The equipment examples contained in this Guide are not inclusive of all equipment at NASA nor is it the intention of this guide to comprehensively address all different makes, models and sizes of equipment. The examples contained herein are typical of common equipment, and are intended for NASA personnel to duplicate, imitate or expand upon for their explicit and unique purposes. This guide is an update to the March 2001 NASA Reliability Centered Building and Equipment Acceptance Guide. It contains 46 additional general equipment specifications as well as updates to the glossary and appendices. SpecsIntact references have been included in this update.
