Reliability Centered Maintenance

Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) methodology is a systematic risk based approach that creates 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 and identify the failure’s cause.
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; we also offer the following optional services:
    • 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 can interface with DNV's ORBIT RCM software tool for continuous updates and improvements. In cases where the client has its own CMMS implemented, PT WIDE & PIN can assist the client in developing a tailor made ERP interface module, where it can be used to upload and organize the plans/task lists into CMMS.
    RCM Working Process
  • RCM process is systematic, simple and efficient. RCM study is executed 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 all types of failure, using DNV's 'economic optimization and absolute acceptance criteria'.
    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. RCM is there 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 through implementation of RCM. Below is a list of few benefits that can be realized by using RCM:
    • 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 assets
    • Platform for creating operator-round process monitoring procedures
    • Identification of "other reliability issues" such as design changes and procedure changes, potential hidden failures, significant drawing errors and single point failures
    • Identification of equipment that was deemed "non-critical", eliminating many unnecessary maintenance tasks
