RCM (SAE JA 1011)

Reliability Centered Maintenance
RCM based on SAE JA 1011

Achievements (chemical plants):

  • Up to 30 % reduction of production losses
  • Up to 40 % reduction of maintenance costs
  • Significant safety improvements (including environment)

Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) allows to formulate recommendations on maintenance. RCM is a systematic and structured approach and gives answers on following questions:

  • Which maintenance approach should be applied
    (safety, environment, operation)
  • What are the reasons for the implemented maintenance strategy
  • Is there a way to reduce maintenance costs
  • Is the selected maintenance strategy cost effective or should it be redesigned

The seven RCM questions (SAE JA 1011):

  • What are the functions and associated desired standards of performance of the asset in its present operating context (functions) ?
  • In what ways can it fail to fulfil its functions (functional failures) ?
  • What causes each functional failure (failure modes) ?
  • What happens when each failure occurs (failure effects) ?
  • In what way does each failure matter (failure consequences) ?
  • What should be done to predict or prevent each failure (proactive tasks and tasks intervals) ?
  • What should be done if no suitable proactive task cannot be found (default actions) ?

Results:

  • Failure Management Policies
  • Improvement proposals
  • Scheduled tasks
  • Workorders
  • Systematic documentation
