Abstract :

RCM provides simple, precise and easily understood criteria for deciding technical feasibility of PM/PdM task in the particular context. This means that PM/PdM tasks are only specified for failures which really need them. This in turn leads to substantial reduction in routine workloads. Less routine work also means that the remaining tasks are done properly. This together with the elimination of counter productive tasks leads to more effective maintenance. RCM creates awareness in Maintenance professionals regarding six patterns of failures. A maintenance professional as such comes to terms with the reality of randomness after decades in bathtub. Maintenance professionals thus realise that the idea of age related failures simply does not apply to random failures (Pattern D, E and F). An awareness of these facts has led some organisations to abandon the idea of PM altogether for failures with minor consequences.
