Smith and Mobley (2008) highlight the following types of asset management strategies that may be developed from an RCM process.

1. Condition based tasks. E.g. Oil is sampled from a transformer and the results of the analysis determine if further maintenance is required.

2. Scheduled restoration. E.g. A Sheave bank running in a corrosive environment that requires overhaul at fixed intervals.

3. Scheduled Discard. E.g. The replacement of oil in a combustion engine.

4. Failure finding task. E.g. Calibration of instrumentation. The fault may not be discovered until the calibration is done.

5. One-time change. Typically a one off redesign.
