Reliability-centered Maintenance (RCM) entails a methodical approach to the following three main matters.
» Understanding failure
» Consequences of failure
» Impact of preventive maintenance
The application of RCM results in a scheduled maintenance program that includes all scheduled tasks that are
required for safe and economical operations. There are two activity branches for RCM:
Operational RCM concerns with designing and implementing effective scheduled maintenance tasks and procedures
for performing them. Analytical RCM evaluates and applies inherent reliability characteristics to optimize
the scheduled maintenance program.
Our work at CA Advisors is primarily focused in Analytical RCM. We utilize various reliability analysis
techniques in a systematic process to evaluate reliability parameters based on operational features. We then
apply these parameters to develop planning and control tools that help in decision-making regarding Operational
RCM and related asset management tasks.
