Your journey starts at the Virtual Reliability Leadership Development Summit

IMC-2019 Learning Session 28:30 Minutes

by Zach Pusnik, Acquisition Logistics Engineering

This informational session will familiarize attendees with the formal Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM) Analysis process, methods to integrate stakeholders into the RCM process, and highlight the critical insights that are available from the application of this process to support building a cost-effective maintenance program. The presentation content provides the groundwork for optimizing “uptime” and equipment reliability as applied to complex systems.

The program material focuses on combining an integrated team of stakeholders with the structured approach of industry accepted RCM Analysis processes (Functional Block Diagrams (FBDs), Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), Logic Tree Analysis (LTA), and Supply Support Optimization to plan for and conduct required maintenance and asset management activities. This analysis process will highlight the impacts of diversifying stakeholder participation, execution of the analysis processes themselves, and interpreting the results of the RCM analysis to identify applicable and effective maintenance that will maintain or restore the inherent reliability of your equipment. By understanding how and when your key infrastructure may fail to perform critical functions, a comprehensive and responsive maintenance plan can be developed to maximize functional uptime with predictable costs while generating/maintaining stakeholder “buy in.” Most importantly, the presentation will discuss how to interpret RCM analysis results and provide insight on how to convert the understandings gained from the analysis into a comprehensive and efficient maintenance program.
