Demystifying the common misconceptions about Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) This webinar demystifies the common misconceptions about Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM). Sadly, it is often wrongly believed that RCM takes too long to perform, or it is too expensive, or it is too complicated. This just isn’t so. These misunderstandings about RCM stem from six key misconceptions of the RCM process: 1. RCM seeks to analyze every Failure Mode; 2. RCM is too time and resource intensive; 3. RCM is just about deriving proactive maintenance; 4. RCM, Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), and Failure Modes, Effects, and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) are independent process; 5. Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) and RCM are independent processes; 6. Reading a book or attending an introductory course provides the expertise required to implement RCM. This presentation debunks each of the six misconceptions. Nancy Regan will guide attendees as they discover just how robust, powerful, and uncomplicated the RCM process really is.
