Reliability Centered Maintenance
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
- 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:
- 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
