Study Group and Task Forces

Project Info

The Study Group and Task Force structure that TMC members employ to this day was put into place in 1966. The Study Groups and Task Forces formed the backbone for what would soon become the institutional memory of the organization—the Recommended Practices Manual. The first Recommended Maintenance Practices Manual was unveiled in December 1973 (although it would not be widely distributed until 1975), and the first practice—RP 101, “Heavy Duty Alternator Mounting”—remains in the manual today, although it is now joined by more than 400 other recommended practices.
