Plants worldwide turn to reliability tools such as RCM and RCA to reduce maintenance costs and prevent disruptions. They help identify where losses are, develop procedures to mitigate the losses and, ideally, improve equipment reliability and performance. Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM) asks what could happen and Root Cause Analysis (RCA) examines what did happen. Though many use these two independently, used together they can produce extremely significant benefits. This session will detail how these two powerful tools combined can eliminate defects and improve the reliability of your manufacturing assets.
