Course Description

The successful management of physical assets requires more than technical skills. Pressures to reduce the cost of ownership demand more precisely focussed asset management and failure management strategies.  In a global competitive environment where inadequate maintenance or flawed operating procedures can cost lives or increased maintenance costs, managers (at all levels) have to adopt new ways to maintain asset availability and safety.  RCM can be used to create a cost effective maintenance strategy to address the causes of equipment failure.   It is a systematic approach to defining a routine maintenance programme composed of suitable cost effective tasks that preserve user defined functions based on the asset’s operating context.  The RCM approach challenges traditional concepts and changes how managers and maintainers think about maintenance.
