Reliability Centered Maintenance – Reengineered: Practical Optimization of the RCM Process with RCM-R® provides an optimized approach to a well-established and highly successful method used for determining failure management policies for physical assets. It makes the original method that was developed to enhance flight safety far more useful in a broad range of industries where asset criticality ranges from high to low. RCM-R® is focused on the science of failures and what must be done to enable long-term sustainably reliable operations. If used correctly, RCM-R® is the first step in delivering fewer breakdowns, more productive capacity, lower costs, safer operations and improved environmental performance. Maintenance has a huge impact on most businesses whether its presence is felt or not. RCM-R® ensures that the right work is done to guarantee there are as few nasty surprises as possible that can harm the business in any way. RCM-R® was developed to leverage on RCM’s original success at delivering that effectiveness while addressing the concerns of the industrial market. RCM-R® addresses the RCM method and shortfalls in its application -- It modifies the method to consider asset and even failure mode criticality so that rigor is applied only where it is truly needed. It removes (within reason) the sources of concern about RCM being overly rigorous and too labor intensive without compromising on its ability to deliver a tailored failure management program for physical assets sensitive to their operational context and application. RCM-R® also provides its practitioners with standard based guidance for determining meaningful failure modes and causes facilitating their analysis for optimum outcome. Includes extensive review of the well proven RCM method and what is needed to make it successful in the industrial environment Links important elements of the RCM method with relevant International Standards for risk management and failure management Enhances RCM with increased emphasis on statistical analysis, bringing it squarely into the realm of Evidence Based Asset Management Includes extensive, experience based advice on implementing and sustaining RCM based failure management programs

Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM2) has been around since the late 90s, but it was a consequence-based approach. This book includes much more modern thinking, and involves a risk-based methodology, aligning with International ISO standards (55000 and 31000). The result is a more wholistic, rigorous way for developing asset care and risk-mitigating strategies for physical assets. Since the release of the ISO 310004 and ISO 550005, Standards for Risk Management and Asset Management respectively, Aladon developed RCM3(tm), a risk-based RCM methodology that places managing the risk and reliability of physical assets mainstream with other business management systems in an organization. RCM3 fully complies and exceeds the requirements of the SAE Standard and fully aligns with the frameworks of the ISO Standards. This book is an update of the worldwide bestselling RCM2 book by John Moubray. Moubray was a pioneer in the field of Reliability Centered Maintenance, who founded Aladon and the Aladon Network. During that time, he trained and mentored Marius Basson. The new risk-based focus of RCM III (proactive management of intolerable physical and economic risks) features the following principles: * Updated approach for testing and handling of protective devices * Based on the requirements of the Fourth-industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) and its challenges * Covers new expectations and new maintenance techniques for Fourth-generation maintenance * Places reliability & risk management mainstream with organizational objectives and management systems * Aligned and integrated with International ISO standards for physical asset management and risk management (ISO 55000 and ISO 31000) * Now part of an integrated asset strategy for full life-cycle management of physical assets.

In this book the authors provide a fresh look at basic reliability and maintainability engineering techniques and management tools for ap plication to the system maintenance planning and implementation process. The essential life-cycle reliability centered maintenance (ReM) activities are focused on maintenance planning and the prevention of failure. The premise is that more efficient, and therefore effective, life-cycle main tenance programs can be established using a well disciplined decision logic analysis process that addresses individual part failure modes, their consequences, and the actual preventive maintenance tasks. This premise and the techniques and tools described emphasize preventive, not corrective, maintenance. The authors also describe the techniques and tools fundamental to maintenance engineering. They provide an understanding of the inter relationships of the elements of a complete ReM program (which are applicable to any complex system or component and are not limited only to the aircraft industry). They describe special methodologies for improving the maintenance process. These include an on-condition maintenance (OeM) methodology to identify defects and potential deterioration which can determine what is needed as a maintenance action in order to prevent failure during use.

Two big challenges face asset management and reliability engineering programs today: knowing where to start and setting priorities. A meaningful criticality analysis is key to solving this challenge of clarity on what is to be achieved, establishing priorities, and aligning and targeting resources. It is also the starting point for making sure stakeholders are working together towards achieving better outcomes. While a criticality analysis is one of the most important elements in an asset management program, it is perhaps the most overlooked and misunderstood. Criticality Analysis Made Simple explains criticality and shows how to conduct an efficent and effective criticality analysis, laying the foundation for delivering maximum value from your assets.The book starts by explaining criticality and addressing some common misperceptions, and then shows how a criticality analysis supports the overall aim of an asset management program. Practical instruction on how to conduct a criticality analysis is followed by a discussion of how to maximize and apply the benefits of the analysis, tying criticality in to the bottomline. Helpful case studies and a discussion of how a criticality analysis supports the aims of ISO55000 are also included.This book makes criticality analysis simple to understand and easier to apply. The concepts and approach outlined have been proven to be highly effective and very efficient in multiple organizations. Criticality Analysis Made Simple will be valuable for teams tasked with uncovering risk and criticality in their organizations and for business leaders looking for greater success from their asset management programs.
