Reliability-centered maintenance and FMECA Training Objectives 

With the Reliability-centered maintenance and FMECA training, you will be able to: 

  • Understand the purpose of a Reliability Strategy 
  • Understand the RCM 
  • Understand FMECA  
  • Combination of RCM and FMECA 
  • Learn how to select effective reliability strategy 
  • Learn how to describe the maintenance tasks 

Select the most appropriate maintenance strategy, providing an acceptable level of operability, safety and risk, in an efficient and cost-effective way. 


What is Reliability-centered maintenance and FMECA?  

Reliability centered maintenance (RCM) is a reliability tool that is used to ensure the inherent designed reliability of a process or piece of equipment while FMECA mostly is used to define the maintenance strategy for a specific piece of equipment, product line, or facility. Both are developed through the understanding and discovery of equipment functions, functional failures, failure modes and failure effects. 

Reliability-centered maintenance (RCM) is used to optimize the maintenance program of a company or facility. The final result of an RCM program is the identification and implementation of the most adequate maintenance strategy on each of the assets of the organization. 

Failure mode, effects and criticality analysis (FMECA) is an extension of failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA).  

FMECA includes the RPN and a degree of quantitative input taken from a source of known failure rate (such as MTBF), information about pre-failure warning, if the failure is hidden or evident and the failure pattern to support on the maintenance strategy identification. 


Reliability-centered maintenance and FMECA training course 

The participants will attend a theoretical training session in RCM and FMECA and a workshop that will allow the participants to implement RCM and FMECA on an asset. 

The RCM and FMECA training workshop will be performed using specific templates and a benchmark example.
