CRL 1-hr: Nov 7 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

Why You Need a Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) Software

When carrying out Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) studies, organizations document and store a great deal of complex data. From your asset register, your performance objectives, and your process functions and success criteria, to your Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), and risk-mitigation strategies, you need to have an efficient and effective means of recording, storing, accessing and reviewing this critical data so that you can make proficient and informed business decisions.

Typically data is stored using a combination of data management tools and methods. For example, spreadsheets and hard copies are often utilized to manage data captured throughout an RCM study. While these methods may provide a quick solution to RCM data management, they will only leave your data spread out in multiple places. Because the data is uncoordinated, it will not only be unorganized and difficult to assemble for analysis, it will also make the data sources difficult to track, and easy to lose—requiring more effort on your part to manage your RCM study.

Alternatively, an RCM software tool is capable of housing your RCM data in one, centralized location, ensuring that you get the most out of your RCM study. Through clear data organization, a maintenance and practices assessments tool will provide an effective means to managing the data throughout each step of an RCM study. The process of analyzing data and planning effective mitigation tasks will be smooth and streamlined. You will be able to quickly document and review your performance objectives, functions, and criticality analysis to efficiently go through the task-selection process. RCM software documents and organizes data in a way that makes it easy to prioritize and justify maintenance and corrective tasks, which then facilitates solid business decisions. Additionally, RCM software is a beneficial tool to continue to monitor and maintain an effective reliability program over time.
