RCM TODAY DOES NOT RESEMBLE
RCM can be a powerful reliability tool but unfortunately,
it has morphed and transformed into what it has unjustly become today.... that being a complex process that
is difficult to implement, and very costly to undertake. That is NOT how RCM was intended
to be. As a result, I have re-introduced the basic grassroots fundamental concepts of the RCM process in the manner it was
always intended to be by its founders Nowlan and Heap, so that RCM can reach a new plateau of understanding by the average
layperson, thusly making the entire process less daunting, more straightforward, and simpler.
Virtually all of my clients
were previously intimately familiar with RCM, and in fact, had tried various RCM versions... none of which were successful.
They ranged from the ultra simplistic streamlined versions to the ultra complex, obfuscated, and complicated versions.
The really simple versions were insufficiently robust to make any reasonable improvement to their preventive maintenance
program. The complex, overly complicated versions could not be readily implemented. After their RCM nightmares
and failures, those clients chose to contact me!
Every single client I have worked with has had extremely
successful results in improving their asset reliability, plant safety, cost effectiveness, and PM program stature. I
would gladly provide references from any one of my numerous clients (they are noted in this website) who will attest to their
successful RCM experience.
IT'S WEEKS NOT YEARS!
While most of today's renditions
of RCM are measured in the number of years it takes to complete the process... with my training seminar, the time to complete
a COMPREHENSIVE RCM ANALYSIS FOR ALL COMPONENTS IN A PLANT OR FACILITY SHOULD NOT EXCEED SIX TO EIGHT WEEKS AT
MYTHS ABOUT RCM
Some of the greatest
myths about RCM are as follows:
... RCM should not be attempted by
... RCM requires a specialized facilitator regimen.
... RCM is a very difficult process to implement.
... RCM is by definition an expensive process.
RCM can only be accomplished by experts.
Obviously, all of these
above myths, like all myths, are untrue.
WHAT IS A PLANT OR FACILITY ?
In my book, a plant and a facility are synonymous.
They are the entities for which you should maintain a preventive
maintenance program. They include any entity or asset where it is unacceptable to incur an unplanned shutdown, a loss of production or generation capability, a regulatory violation, environmental hazards, or any safety hazards such as fires,explosions, or personnel injuries.
In essence, it is any entity or asset that
manufactures a product or produces an output where it is unacceptable to incur unplanned interruptions of the operation
or worse yet an unwanted
