Many organizations have been unsuccessful in implementing RCM because they failed to translate or act on data, had undefined plans and objectives, or lacked organizational competency and support.

Based on decades of experience, we have found that organizations that consider business risk and program optimization will have a more successful RCM program. eRCM gives learners the resources and practice to effectively integrate risk and optimization through an FMEA and RCM analysis, asset hierarchy, asset criticality, equipment maintenance plans, and PM optimization.

  • Build a business case for an RCM program and explore different RCM implementation approaches
  • Analyze an asset’s failure risks in a failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA)
  • Apply a proven framework to select and justify maintenance strategies
  • Measure progress and create action plans for improvement
