RELIABILITY CENTRED MAINTENANCE (RCM)

T&RS Engineering has Engineers trained in the process and with in-depth experience of Reliability Centred Maintenance. We produce an engineering framework that enables the definition of a complete maintenance regime. This enables Train Operators / Maintainers to monitor, assess, predict and generally understand the working of their physical assets. This is embodied in the initial part of the RCM process which is to identify the operating context of the component or system and write a Failure Mode Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA).

 

The second part of the analysis is to apply the “RCM logic”, which helps determine the appropriate maintenance tasks for the identified failure modes in the FMECA.

 

RCM is kept “live” throughout the in-service life of the train, where the effectiveness of the maintenance is kept under constant review and adjusted in light of the experience gained.

 

Reliability Centered Maintenance can be used to create a cost-effective maintenance strategy to address the dominant causes of equipment failure. It is a systematic approach to defining a routine maintenance program composed of cost-effective tasks that preserve important functions.
