Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) - KPI's for Measuring SuccessBoK Content Type:White PaperBoK Content Source:PEMAC ProducedOriginal date:Monday, March 7, 2016This paper was developed as a collaboration between PEMAC members at the initiative of the GTA Chapter. The purpose of the paper is to provide maintenance and reliability professionals with the key KPI’s that should be used to measure the effectiveness and success of an RCM program. First the whitepaper will explore where and when to apply RCM.Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) is a rigorous risk management methodology widely used to improve the availability of physical assets by determining the optimal failure management strategies for those assets in their present or planned operating context. Because it is a resource intensive methodology it is typically used in high-risk mission-critical contexts. The failure management strategies that are output from an RCM analysis might include preventive maintenance, predictive maintenance, run-to-failure strategies, and design or operating process changes. RCM produces an array of business benefits including: Increased reliability and availability leading to increased levels of production or service delivery capability, potentially increasing revenue Increased levels of quality and precision, Increased levels of compliance with environmental regulations and standards Increased levels of safety, and Lower operating costs. These benefits translate into increased business stability and predictability which can lead to more favorable treatment by investors, lenders and insurers, and preferred supplier status for customers. When considering or implementing a methodology like RCM, it is important to understand the circumstances for which RCM is best suited and how best to measure success should you move forward with an RCM program. The purpose of this whitepaper is to provide maintenance and reliability professionals with the key KPI’s that should be used to measure the effectiveness and success of an RCM program. First the whitepaper will explore where and when to apply RCM.

Whitepaper: Sustainment Life Cycle ManagementBoK Content Type:White PaperBoK Content Source:Practitioner ProducedOriginal date:Tuesday, March 17, 2015A whitepaper on Sustainment Life Cycle Management - Informational guidance for excellence in Asset Management, Maintenance and ReadinessThis whitepaper looks at how a company / organization / municipality can access and extract 50 years of aerospace and defense experience for use in modern day physical Asset Management (AM) practice. The data is available from a relatively few, admittedly often large, 'free' documents. Yes, you read that correctly, publicly available over the Internet - FREE.BackgroundToday, technology is being applied to almost everything. With the dawning of the Internet of Things (IoT), we see increasing numbers of embedded smart sensors which allow for reliability assurance, good maintenance practice and increased readiness. However, assets once simple are now complex.
