Advanced Concepts

FUNCTIONS

  • How to decide if a Function should be recorded
  • Deeper discussion on what something IS versus what it DOES
  • Tips for writing Functions
  • Start-up and shut-down Functions
  • Design Capability versus Required Performance: Aloha Airlines accident – a case study

FAILURE MODES

  • Deeper discussion on what Failure Modes to include in an RCM analysis
  • Reverse-engineering current maintenance tasks to Failure Modes
  • Debunking the “5 whys” of “Root Cause Failure Analysis”
  • Tips for writing Failure Modes
  • Using RCM to “root out” ‘Human Error’
  • The kind of data we should be collecting
  • Aligning level of analysis with the goals of the RCM analysis

FAILURE EFFECTS

  • Writing Failure Effects with Local Effects, Next Higher Effects, and End Effects

FAILURE CONSEQUENCES

  • Deeper discussion on what constitutes “normal situations”
  • Taking Operational Consequences to the next level: Case study from the modern day commercial airline industry

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

  • Useful Life versus MTBF
  • Deeper look at “worth doing”
  • Conditional Probability of Failure versus Probability of Failure

ON-CONDITION MAINTENANCE

  • Identifying “Failure” on the P-F curve
  • More than one “Failure” on the P-F curve
  • Deeper look at “worth doing”
  • Gauges: Accuracy versus Tolerance and the P-F Interval
  • “Safety Factor” and P-F intervals

DEFAULT STRATEGIES

  • Discussion on why Default Checks and Failure Finding are last on the Decision Diagram

PROACTIVE MAINTENANCE

  • Discussion on RCM Decision Diagram task hierarchy

ANALYSIS VALIDATION AND IMPLEMENTATION

  • How a Validation Meeting is conducted
  • Anatomy of an RCM Validation Package and Final Summary
  • Key topics for the Validation Team to focus on during an RCM Validation

EXERCISES

  • Maintenance Tasks and Default Strategies
  • Failure Consequences

RCM ANALYSIS

  • Time management in an RCM analysis
  • The role of software in an RCM analysis
  • Once RCM analyses are completed, are they ever revisited?
  • Can RCM templates be used to expedite an RCM analysis?
  • How the information in an RCM analysis can be used for other purposes.
  • Does RCM reduce maintenance on legacy assets?
