In today’s environment, a corporate-level maintenance strategy is a critical component of reducing operational risks. RCM (Reliability Centered Maintenance) is a method of determining the appropriate maintenance strategy for a company’s facilities assets.
RCM is an ongoing, systematic process of matching assets with maintenance strategies. The primary objective of RCM is to identify failure modes and preserve system functions. By concentrating on the reliability journey, RCM will reduce operational risks, producing consistent and dependable equipment.
Gary Stevens, Director of Engineering and Maintenance, shares the four stages to take into consideration when starting an RCM program at your site: Evaluation, Design & Determination, Quality & Value, and Implementation & Validation.
