Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM): Analytical Process to Develop Optimized Maintenance Program


Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) is an analytical process used to assist in developing an optimized maintenance program delivering reduced maintenance costs and downtime, whilst optimising performance of systems and equipment to achieve maximum availability and Return on Investment (ROI), together with high levels of Safety, Quality and Environmental protection. RCM improves maintenance decision-making by providing an objective approach to selecting an appropriate maintenance strategy and establishing priorities.

PROCLAD Academy’s interactive Reliability Centered Maintenance training course addresses the integration of a range of reliability initiatives into an asset management strategy. Participants will discover the tools necessary to develop, implement, and sustain best in class maintenance and reliability programs. They will also learn the foundational elements their organisations need in order to reduce reactive maintenance, downtime and maintenance costs with proven reliability methods.

The key features of PROCLAD Academy’s Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) training course are:

  • Evolution of Maintenance
  • Background on RCM
  • Classifications of Maintenance
  • RCM Process Framework
