Why you cannot miss this event

This unique three-day RCM course is globally recognized as a mandatory grounding for managers, maintenance and operational staff involved with reliability improvement. This course enables participants to realign their thinking regarding maintenance and its multi-disciplinary position in all industrial enterprises. It provides the initial basic training requirements for all RCM II analysis team members. The approach taught on the course conforms fully to the SAE JA 1011 standard on Reliability Centred Maintenance processes. This event recognizes the benefits of certain classical approaches yet emphasizes on the need to further examine and align them to fit the current needs of the entire organization’s business processes. 


Who should attend:

•        Reliability Engineers

•        General Managers / Presidents/ VPs

•        Head of Maintenance / Maintenance Managers

•        Head of Reliability / Reliability Manager

•        Head of Engineering /Engineering Manager

•        Head of Operations / Operations Manager

•        Maintenance Superintendents

•        Asset Managers

•        Plant Engineer / Manager

•        Technical Heads / Manager

•        Team Leaders

•        Project Managers (Maintenance related)

Anyone who has responsibility for:

•        Maintenance management (managers, superintendents, engineers)

•        Maintenance and reliability engineers

•        Asset operations (production, operations management)

•        Safety or environment integrity (environmental and safety officers)

•        Product quality or customer service

•        Anyone else with an interest in asset integrity and performance


Day One

Session One

Introduction: What is RCM and what is the language to speak?

Perfecting the RCM framework, RCM is the modern derivation and the most comprehensive RCM methodology available for complying with OSHA’s Process Safety Management (PSM) regulations (including Mechanical Integrity) and deals with the entire range of failures addressed by API’s Risk Based Inspection (RBI). RCM is an employee involvement process that enables you to get more out of your physical assets in terms of: Equipment Reliability, Product Quality, Customer Service, Safety, Environment Protection and Training; while you put less in, in terms of: Predictive Maintenance, Preventive Maintenance and Corrective Maintenance


Session Two

Preparing the RCM process

This session explores the various aspects entailed in the introductory or preparation phase of an RCM process. In turn, it would enable the participants to clearly define potential problem areas. This would help to reveal simple tools to employ in order to gather basic information.­­

• Getting organised and establishing the RCM review groups

• Defining the analysis scope and describing the system concept

• Understanding the context of the analysis: the operating environment


Session Three

Phase I – Exploiting the functional information

• Defining Functions and desired performance standards

• Assessing functions and assuring clarity of description

• Specifying performance standards for functions


Day Two

Session One

Phase 2 – Assessing failure consequences

• Defining the failed states of the asset: functional failures

• Establishing the failure mechanism of failure (failure modes)

• Identifying what happens when failures occur (failure effects)

• Gauging failures which threaten the safety or the environment

• Measuring failures that effect production or operations (output, product quality or customer service)

• Estimating failure that only entail the direct cost of repair

• Examines consequences of failure with special attention to devices that entail the loss of protection


Session Two

Phase 3 – Embarking on the mitigation decision

• Utilising the decision Tree

• Assessing the validity of different types of proactive maintenance such as Condition based maintenance (condition monitoring and predictive maintenance)

• Determining the course of action when a suitable proactive task cannot be found

• Scheduling the restoration and discard tasks

• Setting task frequencies and identifying who should perform the tasks (maintenance or operations)

• Assessing the validity of Reactive Maintenance

• Discovering when and how often to conduct failure finding routines

• Deciding when to run to failure

• Establishing what and when to redesign


Session Three

Executing the implementation phase

• Reviewing when and how to audit an RCM Analysis

• Employing suitable planning systems

• Implementing outputs into maintenance schedules, operating SOPs and design changes

• Reporting as a key aspect in the implementation phase

• Implementing reliability improvement with RCM


Day Three

Session One

Expanding the RCM process beyond the scope of a single analysis

Following the implementation phase, this session provides insights into the most suitable way of getting started when applying RCM process. It draws light to enhancing the RCM process as a system integrator for complex assets. This would also elaborate the steps involved in handling complex system integration.

• Reusing asset knowledge

• RCM during asset design

• Handling integration of complex systems

• Selecting the relevant analysis scopes


Session Two

Reinforcing the RCM process in the organisation

• Enabling RCM in an organisation and setting expectations

• Studying the RCM variants and norms

• Using supervisors, operators, craftsmen and specialists in RCM review groups

• Creating a holistic approach to asset management

• Highlighting the role of the RCM analyst

Exercise: A group integrated FMEARCM exercise will be conducted to provide practical insights for optimum maintenance plan.
