    RBM (Risk Based Maintenance) is a promising method of maintenance for aged plants. The Risk is defined as the product of likelihood and consequence of failure. The likelihood of failure is evaluated by prediction of residual life or sensitivity of failure and degradation. Technical module is a tool to evaluate the likelihood of failure. In this paper development of technical module for erosion-corrosion which is one of the most likely mechanism of failure in aged plants is introduced.
