About RCM Training

Reliability Centered Maintenance training teaches fundamental engineering concepts necessary for determining appropriate preventive maintenance requirements and other failure mitigation strategies for physical assets. RCM applies to any industry that requires reliable, cost-effective performance from their assets. Applicable industries include, but are not limited to Defense, Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical, Food Processing, Chemical Processing, Mining, Facilities, Transportation, Aerospace, Agriculture, Alternative Energy, Energy Distribution, and Power Generation.

The Goal

Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) training is the adoption of principles which realize the maximum capability of a physical asset at the minimal cost and risk. Learn the engineering principles used at reliable, high-performance plants and physical assets in the military, municipal and commercial sectors. Join the RCM certified technicians and physical asset owners in implementing and improving cost-effective maintenance programs using a logical and comprehensive SAE JA1011 compliant RCM process.

SAE JA 1011

(Society of Automotive Engineers)

The technical standard: Evaluation Criteria for RCM Processes which outlines the criteria for an RCM process by isolating 7 questions in order:

  1. What is the asset supposed to do and what are its associated performance standards?
  2. In what ways can it fail to provide the required functions?
  3. What are the events that cause each failure?
  4. What’s the consequence when each failure occurs?
  5. In what way does each failure matter?
  6. What systematic task can be performed proactively to prevent, or to diminish to a satisfactory degree, the consequences of the failure?
  7. What must be done if a suitable preventive task cannot be found?

Identifying and capturing the Failure Mode Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) determines key throughput points and levels of criticality are assigned. Identifying tolerance is an important component. Then the RCM logic determines appropriate maintenance schedules to maximize process and plant efficiency.

The outcome is a systemic maintenance program that prioritizes up-time and efficiency at the lowest cost.

 

What You Will Learn:

  • Predictive maintenance cycles and equipment failure curves
  • Identifying operating risk
  • Failure modes, effects, and criticality analysis
  • Run-to-failure strategies
  • Equipment criticality analysis
  • Parts failure initiation
  • Equipment redesign methods
  • Time-based maintenance vs. on-condition maintenance

Types of RCM Training

RCM affects operations at all levels of the organization. The RCM course offerings reflect the different needs of executives, reliability managers, and others who interact with the RCM decision-making process and/or daily maintenance schedule.

Benefits of RCM Training

Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) method achieves optimal levels of economy, availability, and safety by developing and applying cutting-edge systems engineering and supportability analysis tools, processes, and expertise.
RCM strategy provides critical insights into equipment performance, identifies system improvements, optimizes operations & support, enhances business decisions, and achieves measurable life-cycle cost savings.

 

  • Increased confidence in capital equipment decision making
  • More reliable plant and operating equipment; improved machine uptime
  • Optimal solutions for responding to failure modes
  • Ability to audit performance equipment
  • More accurate planning and budgeting for capital equipment
  • Deliver to management the highest possible plant utility and performance
  • Make sense of and leverage failure data
  • Make informed risk decisions on paper using quantifiable (and explainable) formula

Who is RCM for?

RCM training is beneficial to the military, municipal & commercial sectors, specifically:

  • Fleet/asset managers
  • Maintenance planners/managers
  • Reliability managers/engineers
  • Field service representatives
  • Logisticians
  • Maintenance technicians
  • Supportability professionals
  • Executive management

RCM 100

RCM Executive Overview

A high-level overview of the Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM) process, to include benefits, data requirements, and the role of RCM in an overall asset management program. Intended for managers and decision makers interested in or considering implementing an RCM effort. This course can be tailored to a specific customer and performed virtually or on-site.

  • A management level understanding of RCM and its component processes
  • An understanding of resources involved in undertaking an RCM effort (Who, What, When, and How)
  • What benefits and return on investment are traditionally expected from an RCM effort
  • RCM total outcomes

The Overview will provide what it takes to implement the RCM process and what benefits you can expect upon implementation. In addition, it provides examples of the common pitfalls an organization should avoid.
