MISSISSAUGA -- March 8, 2016 -- The Plant Engineering & Maintenance Association of Canada (PEMAC), a non-profit association providing global leadership, education and certification in asset management. Maintenance and reliability practices, announces the release of its first whitepaper entitled: Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) KPI’s for Measuring Success.

“Our members embody a tremendous amount of knowledge, and PEMAC is excited to facilitate opportunities for them to share that knowledge with others. This inaugural whitepaper represents the launch of an informative series that will allow members to share the great work they are doing, and to learn from others,” notes Cindy Snedden, Executive Director of PEMAC.

The whitepaper is a result of a culmination of work by the RCM working group initiated by the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) Chapter of PEMAC. Composed of experts from a number of industries, the working group combined their experience, knowledge and insights, to develop a whitepaper that focuses on the key KPI’s that maintenance and reliability professionals should use to measure the effectiveness and success of RCM programs.

Working group members include Jeff Bonnell, Alexandru Ivan, James Reyes-Picknell and Faisal Shaheen, representing experiences from both service providers and asset owning organizations. Their results of their work has produced a whitepaper that shares the role and history of RCM, insight to choosing RCM methods as well as alternative options. The document highlights how to get started with RCM, as well as tips to ensure success.

“PEMAC is doing great work to bring like-minded professionals together through initiatives across the country and locally, as well as providing specialized education in an effort to improve the professionalism and recognition of its members. Our work locally in the GTA Chapter to expand knowledge is evidence that great things can happen when we join together to share our insights and experiences,” states Nigel D’Souza, Manager, Asset & Maintenance Management (AMM) Group at Ontario Clean Water Agency, and President of PEMAC GTA Chapter.
