Introduction to Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM)

Reliability Centered Maintenance Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) is a method used around the world by Mechanical Engineering manage rotating equipment. RCM focus on Maintenance task development based on equipment reliability condition. The first RCM was applied by United airlines to reduce the number of maintenance tasks on the aircraft with satisfactory results ie aircraft flight & safety increased. Although born in aircraft companies, Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) can be implemented in the process industry with little modification. Application of Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) method will give advantages that safety and environmental integrity become more preferred, improved operational performance, lower operating cost, and maintenance effectiveness, improved equipment availability and reliability, longer component life, more comprehensive database, individual motivation larger, and good cooperation between the parts in an installation. what is reliability centered maintenance mean? “The probability that a system will perform satisfactorily for a given period of time under stated conditions.”  (Dimitri[…]
