Let’s celebrate the birthday of a very special Maintenance and Reliability event. In July 2018, the MSG-1 document turned 50 years old. Since many of the principles found in MSG-1 are embodied in RCM, that means RCM principles are also 50 years old! Take a trip down memory lane with me and MSG-1…the first of two documents that led us to Reliability Centered Maintenance!
“Fit or fold” is a losing strategy in poker…and when it comes to equipment maintenance. When you work in a reactive environment and only do maintenance when failure occurs, you’re living at the mercy of our equipment. Watch how RCM can help you formulate a winning maintenance strategy.
Watch how my refrigerator…(make that THREE refrigerators)…reminded me about Potential Failure Conditions and the Consequences of Failure. I explain why I ignored a Potential Failure Condition coming from my refrigerator and chose to act “reactively” instead of “proactively.”
Join me and Elvis Presley in a game of “Reliability Centered Maintenance, True or False.” In front of the iconic “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign, we explore: 1) What RCM can yield; 2) What assets you can apply RCM to; and 3) Whether or not you need comprehensive failure data to do RCM.
Just like the “Welcome to Las Vegas sign” has stood the test time, so has RCM. In this video, I explain how we’ve never needed RCM more than we do right now…
Celebrating all fathers…and remembering my own. How a gift from my father put me on the path towards Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM).
I think a lot of people would agree that fathers are special creatures. And many daughters would tell you that a father’s love is one of life’s greatest gifts. I know my father was. At the tender age of eight, what he taught me set the trajectory of my RCM career. He taught me…
