This course provides a comprehensive introduction to RCM3 (Risk-based RCM) and its principles. It is intended for those who are interested in understanding what RCM3 is and how it can be applied to define risk-based maintenance and reliability programs from a strong technical base.
The application of RCM3 changes the way organizations think about their operations and maintenance (O&M). Not only does it challenge the traditional approach to equipment maintenance by moving you from a breakdown and repair mentality, it creates a new culture of risk-based asset management. It revolutionizes views about maintenance and how maintenance, operations and engineering should work together to drive asset performance through full asset life-cycle. RCM3 builds on the very robust RCM2 methodology with a refreshing new look on how to manage the risks associated with protective devices and how to manage the risks associated with preserving asset functions. The risk-based decision logic optimizes the maintenance program (develop the minimum amount of safe maintenance required to preserve the asset functions) while managing the physical and economic risks.
