Reliability Centered Maintenance

Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) methodology is a systematic risk based approach to create an accurate, well targeted and optimized maintenance package that aims at achieving optimum reliability for a facility. The maintenance strategy and task package are developed to address the failure causes and root causes identified.
RCM methodology is based on Risk Based Approach, which involves the following four key steps:
  • Screening analysis
  • FMEA (Failure Mode and Effect Analysis)
  • Risk analysis
  • Risk Based Maintenance (RBM) strategy development
    RCM Related Services
  • RCM working process extends beyond a typical RCM study and helps client implement a maintenance management system. Our services do not stop at delivering the RCM study report, but the following optional services are offered.
    • Task bundling (job packing)
    • Preparation of task list and maintenance plan
    • Load leveling and initial resource planning (prior to upload in CMMS)
    • Preparation of PMRs (Preventive Maintenance Routines)
    • Data Mapping and assistance to upload in the CMMS
    • Establishment of KPIs and help client to launching a living program
    PT WIDE & PIN can provide third generation Oracle based computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) that interface with DNV's ORBIT RCM software tool for continuous updating and improvement. In case the client has his own CMMS implemented, PT WIDE & PIN can assist the client developing a tailor made ERP interface module, which can be used to upload and organize the plans/task lists prior to uploading into CMMS.
    RCM Working Process
  • RCM process is systematic, simple and efficient. RCM study is through organized group sessions that involve active participation of PT WIDE & PIN and client's RCM teams. PT WIDE & PIN RCM consultants will facilitate the sessions with client's RCM team, consisting of process, mechanical, operation, electrical and instrumentation personnel.
    Maintenance Optimization Services
  • PT WIDE & PIN uses the state of art maintenance optimization techniques to optimize the task intervals to optimize the spending. Maintenance optimization can be done for hidden and other failures using DNV's `Economic optimization' and Absolute acceptance criteria' using the models built in the RBM module.
    RCM Training
  • PT WIDE AND PIN can provide customized RCM training and technology transfer for both management and nominated RCM team. Training sessions include:
    • methodology
    • working process and group exercises
    • ORBIT RCM software usage
    Main Benefits of Using RCM
  • RCM is aimed to systematically identify the tags based on the associated risk levels and to develop suitable strategies to mitigate, delay or prevent the failure causes, thus improving the reliability of the tag / equipment / system / plant / facility under the analysis. There are many benefits realized trough implementation of RCM. Following is a list of few benefits that can be realized:
    • Increased intervals between turnarounds
    • Decrease in hidden failures and process trips
    • Improved process monitoring allowing for mitigation of failures
    • Fully documented, consistent and integrated maintenance and operating plan for the entire asset
    • Platform for creating operator-round process monitoring procedures
    • identification of "other reliability issues" such as design changes, procedure changes, potential
    • hidden failures, significant drawing errors and single point failures
    • Identification equipment that were deemed "non-critical", eliminating many unnecessary maintenance tasks
