Benefits of RCM

A RCM analysis helps to reduce costs with streamlined maintenance techniques. After successfully implementing RCM, companies can expect increased equipment uptime as well as lower resource and maintenance costs. An advantage of RCM is its piecemeal maintenance approach. Rather than focusing solely on reactive or proactive maintenance strategies, RCM combines multiple approaches to lower costs.

Other benefits include:

  • Clear criticality of assets
  • Flexible maintenance approach
  • Increase asset utilization
  • Optimized maintenance and inspection intervals
