RCM determines the best possible maintenance schedule for your equipment optimised according to the operating conditions on site. RCM can do this because the entire process accommodates the following factors:

When you apply RCM to your equipment, you will produce a maintenance schedule which contains only the tasks necessary to keep the equipment performing to your desired functions, in your operating context and which is focused on eliminating, avoiding or reducing the consequences of failure.

By targeting maintenance spend according to the consequences of failure and what you want the equipment to do, the following happens:

Comparing your new maintenance schedule with the old one:

In a nutshell, if you apply RCM correctly there are massive gains to be made by achieving inherent equipment reliability and availability in your organisation across the spectrum of equipment safety, environmental integrity, output, product quality. Furthermore, improvements are more likely to endure as a result of the combined involvement of operations and maintenance personnel.
