Reliability Centered Maintenance
September 13 - October 27
This course covers the principles of RCM which is a process used to determine the maintenance requirements of any physical asset in its present operating context. RCM is done by asking seven questions about our asset or system that is being maintained
- What are the functions and associated performance standards of the asset in its present operating context?
- In what ways does it fail to fulfill its functions?
- What causes each functional failure ?
- What happens when each failure occurs ?
- In what ways does each failure matters ?
- What can be done to predict or prevent each failure ?
- What should be done if a suitable proactive tasks cannot be found ?
RCM was discovered by Stanley Nowlan and Howard Heap from United Airlines industry and emerged from the most important piece of research ever done on an equipment. RCM explains the capabilities as well as the limitation of scheduled Preventive Maintenance. RCM is a process to determine what should be done in order to ensure that our physical assets continue to do whatever the user wants them to do in its present operating context.
