The Reliability-centred Maintenance (RCM) process is applied by a selected cross functional group trained in RCM; people who know the equipment the best, the personnel who live with the processes and assets on a day to day basis; operations and production personnel, maintainers and technicians, their relevant first line supervisors, and any suitable technical experts.
This group activity means that assets become more reliability because they are better maintained and less likely to fail due to operator misuse. The combined knowledge and experience of such a group rapidly delivers a powerful business tool.
The RCM process applied and taught by us fully complies with the SAE standard JA 1011; the “Evaluation Criteria of Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) Processes.” This standard was established in 1999, and sets out the criteria that any process must satisfy to be called RCM when it is applied to any particular asset or system.
The course is fully compliant with the SAE standards JA1011 and JA1012. It was developed by RCM experts at Schlumberger Business Consulting (SBC) who were trained and certified by John Moubray in the 1990s and have practiced RCM ever since. It draws on examples from the Tutor’s experience in a wide range of industries at SBC (10 years) and at Aladon (11 years).
