Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM)
Adopting a strategic approach to people, processes and technology to optimise performance and minimise cost

RCM is a systematic way of looking at equipment, its functions, its failure modes, effects and the consequences of failure. The purpose is to select smart maintenance tactics to minimise the consequences of failure and to build an effective maintenance program. To be really effective, RCM needs to go beyond these basics. This program will focus on how to make RCM (Reliability Centred Maintenance) an effective and living tool, and add great value to an organisation’s maintenance and operations functions to achieve operational excellence.

Turning ‘Theory’ into ‘Practice’

Heavily based on practical workshops and live experience of many case studies, this unique program will guide you through the latest maintenance management tools and techniques, advanced maintenance practices and how you can build value in maintenance through reliability. You will develop a personal development plan as a take-away. This is specifically designed to prompt you to apply best practice and techniques at your workplace. Printed handouts, electronic copies of the presentations and RCM worksheets for the practical sessions will be provided.
