Abstract

In this paper the concepts and implementation steps of Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) are presented. A systematic methodology for implementing RCM to evaluate and improve an existing time-based maintenance program at a local plant in Saudi Arabia is discussed. A comparison between the existing and RCM based program illustrated the benefit of using RCM systematic approach to optimize and streamline maintenance programs. Implementation of the RCM program has resulted in substantial benefits to the plant. Significance: RCM is an effective approach for developing efficient preventive maintenance (PM) programs. The developed PM programs minimize equipment failures and provide industrial plants with effective equipment and extra capacity to meet customer demands and supercede competition.
