Reliability centered maintenance (RCM) which is a corporate-level maintenance strategy that is implemented to optimize the maintenance program of a company or facility. The final result of an RCM program is the implementation of a specific maintenance strategy on each of the assets of the facility. The maintenance strategies are optimized so that the productivity of the plant is maintained using cost-effective maintenance techniques. 


Course Objectives: 

At the end of this course the participants will be able to: 

  • Explore the components that comprise an effective maintenance program 

  • Understand the place of Reliability-Centered Maintenance in the business of maintenance and its role in determining the optimum maintenance program 

  • Review the history and principles of RCM along with the various approaches 

  • Present a methodology for applying RCM using examples and working sessions 

  • Understand what is needed to implement RCM and its results 

  • Understand the role of condition monitoring and information systems in the implementation of RCM
