RCM
Reliability centered maintenance is an engineering framework that enables the definition of a complete maintenance regime. It regards maintenance as the means to maintain the functions a user may require of machinery in a defined operating context. As a discipline it enables machinery stakeholders to monitor, assess, predict and generally understand the working of their physical assets. This is embodied in the initial part of the RCM process which is to identify the operating context of the machinery, and write a Failure Mode Effects and Analysis (FMEA). The second part of the analysis is to apply the "RCM logic", which helps to determine the appropriate maintenance tasks for the identified failure modes in the FMEA.

RCM implementation Process


RCM project is composed of four phases each of them has a definite objective to be accomplished and its outcome is an input to the subsequent phases. A brief outline of the four phases is given below PHASE I - Criticality Strategy To develop Criticality Analysis strategy for equipments based on selected criteria -Safety, Environment, Process, Maintenance etc. PHASE II - Criticality Analysis Ranking of the equipments (Compressor, Turbine etc.) based on the strategy developed during PHASE I. PHASE III FMEA, Failure Mode and Effect Analysis To perform FMEA on the selected equipments based on Criticality Analysis and to identify all potential failure modes and their corresponding control techniques.

PHASE IV RCM, Reliability Centered Maintenance Applying RCM techniques to selected equipments and decide on the appropriate maintenance activity for each cause identified in FMEA PHASE. During all the above phases of the project ReliaSofts RCM Experts will sit along with the operation and maintenance personnel of the equipment to facilitate & improvise the FMEA and the RCM analysis.

Benefits of RCM
The Benefits of RCM analysis is given below. Create a comprehensive Database containing all your significant assets information regarding its failure, effect and corrective/preventive actions. Develop a System driven maintenance strategy. Applying the failure history data to justify/optimize the maintenance interval. Apply simulation techniques to estimate the average availability and cost. Develop a scheduled maintenance plan for a physical asset that will provide an acceptable level of functionality, with an acceptable level of risk, in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Evaluate whether preventive maintenance is appropriate and determine optimum maintenance intervals. Promote analysis processes that are more efficient and more effective, utilizing lessons learned from past analyses when applicable.
