How I Applied the Essence of Reliability Centered Maintenance to My Refrigerator

I started to help organizations gain an understanding of maintenance and reliability basics. After all, the basics pervade just about every asset management solution out there ~ and they’re embedded in Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM).

    Hi Nancy,

    I really enjoy your videos, the way you present and clarify the misconceptions in reliability and maintenance fields. I just wanted to elaborate a little bit more on what you described in this video.

    As you mentioned, the intervals between maintenance tasks are not decided upon how severe a failure could be. The severity is a degree which is introduced in a FMEA/FMECA in the RCM process based on the consequences which the failure can inflict on safety, environment, operational elements or non-opertaional ones.

    Thanks a lot for the “Simplified language of RCM”

      Thank you, Amin! And to add to the discussion, it’s important to note that when it comes to setting maintenance task intervals, scheduled restoration and replacement task intervals are governed by the “useful life” of the component. And how often an On-Condition task is done is governed by the P-F Interval.

        You are always inspiring!
        I am looking forward to seeing a video from you about P-F interval and how often an On-Condition task shall be carried out! 🙂
