<p>R&amp;M professionals are typically the main drivers and beneficiaries of an RCM or similar reliability study at a facility. However, when you invite operations and other key business personnel to participate, we&rsquo;ve found it often opens their eyes to M&amp;R improvement opportunities and helps paint the picture for future joint improvement efforts. Organizations are then able to operate with the most efficiency, driving toward a world-class reliability program with plant-wide buy-in for the reliability improvement journey. This presentation will discuss a case study of a joint client and partner consultant approach of choosing a machine or line performing below desired performance levels. Using an RCM approach to improve maintenance strategies, the organization experienced reduced downtime and less labour reallocation and idle time, and gained many instant wins like increased visibility in the maintenance budget and increased collaboration between facilities.</p><p>Presented at MainTrain 2018</p>
