How to Use Reliability Centered Maintenance
(RCM) to Drive Your Bottom Line

Discover how the RCM process is an important tool to increases equipment reliability while lowering maintenance costs

Are you looking to optimize your reliability program?

Without a clear understanding of your assets, their failure modes, and the appropriate mitigation strategies, it is nearly impossible fully optimize your reliability program.

Reliability centered maintenance (RCM) aims to maintain system functionality through optimized maintenance strategies that lead to greater efficiencies and reduced maintenance costs.

Download our free eBook to understand what defines reliability centered maintenance, the importance of FMEA and asset criticality, and how it leads to more optimized maintenance strategies that reduce costs while increasing asset availability.

  • Why RCM increases equipment availability

Reliability Centered Maintenance

What is RCM?

Reliability centered maintenance (RCM) is an asset care/maintenance development and optimization methodology focused on maximizing availability and efficiency while reducing maintenance cost and total cost of ownership (TCO).

Rather than use one maintenance strategy, RCM employs multiple strategies based off an asset’s criticality and failure mode as defined by a failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA).

What You’ll Learn In This eBook

This eBook looks at the RCM process and how to effectively implement RCM for long term success. We explore how flexible maintenance strategies reduce maintenance costs while increasing overall efficiencies. Additionally, we explain how RCM maps to business goals and increases equipment availability by reducing unplanned downtime and/or mitigating failures. By downloading this eBook, you’ll have a better understanding of the RCM process and its benefit for optimizing maintenance programs.
