"Jim August's subject is that RCM could be utilized to an electrical software company within the throes of conversion to retail pageant, and so compelled to contemplate how most sensible to manage upkeep expenses and increase reliability. He calls it utilized Reliability-Centered upkeep (ARCM)." "This booklet introduces RCM to electrical upkeep managers and engineers in a pragmatic demeanour. It gets rid of the tutorial tone

"What's extra, August's ebook interprets RCM into phrases and language for the standard upkeep practitioner. whereas different RCM texts emphasize the unique aerospace procedure, this article addresses the wishes of electrical energy pros - daily paintings functionality, repair/rework judgements, prioritizing paintings time, and working facilities."--Jacket.

Example text

Where 40 years ago, small simple-cycle plants and diesel operations were replaced by huge vertically integrated utilities, today the opposite occurs (Fig. 2-6). Maintenance is one of many complex organizational processes that benefit greatly from process improvement techniques. For example, quality process theories found in manufacturing can be applied to maintenance performance. Maintenance can be viewed as a process that “delivers” available equipment (“products”) in an operating facility on a budget.

Random approaches lead to higher costs. Developing consistent information processes that support cost management requires practical experience and time. Consistent, integrated measurement processes provide the necessary feedback information that enables staffs to tune the maintenance plan. Available generation-oriented CMMS software and user-friendly feedback mechanisms, accessible to any employee, provide effective feedback. Twenty years ago, engineers had secretaries to type reports; today they have PCs and word processors.

Qxd 3/3/00 2:30 PM Page 13 Applied RCM: An Overview summarized in a “logic tree analysis (LTA)” process that works down a systematic hierarchy to classify component decision logic. Simplifying and summarizing the common results of this process is reflected in ARCM. RCM benefits come from applications. ARCM accelerates the tedious and laborious traditional process to provide immediate applications. If the key RCM points include: • strategic mission-oriented thinking • systems equipment approach • function understanding • technology assessment • fact-based decision processes • failure understanding (especially root causes) • statistical failure analysis • profound process understanding • continuous improvement • completeness • functional failure focus • risk management orientation • benefit/cost (B/C) consideration • failure modes identification, classification, and study then an ARCM perspective simplifies maintenance processes, supports standardization, and identifies general strategies.
