Using Review RCM to Improve Plant Performance
Review RCM is a streamlined approach to improving plant performance.
It allows organizations to quickly address ineffective PM programs. How does it achieve this?
By using the operating environment, failure patterns, and P-F interval, we can answer three basic questions:
- Will replacement of part on a known interval or usage reduce the probability of failure?
- Can we see it in the process of failure with sufficient time to respond?
- Is the impact of the failure high enough to warrant the cost of a PM strategy?
These three elements will help us to determine the type of PM strategy that is value-added.
In addition to developing the most value-added strategy, we can increase the standardization and quality of PM execution by developing steps and standards for PM tasks.
We ask five simple questions when creating the PM task to improve the PM standard. We find that a high consequence, value-added PM should address the steps, criteria, references, and, of course, include safety information.
To support this development we utilize the following five simple steps:
- What is to be done?
- What are the consequences if not done?
- How is it to be done?
- What is acceptable?
- What course of action should the craftsman take if the results are unacceptable?
