Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) is an improvement methodology within maintenance management. A large Dutch waste-to-energy plant has installed a new slag crane. STEAM Consultancy has been asked to write an advisory report on the basis of an RCM analysis regarding risk reduction through strategic maintenance and spare-parts optimilisation.

First, we performed a number of RCM sessions together with the client. Among other things, an FMECA was carried out with a multidisciplinary team of specialists and users. FMECA (Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis) is a methodology to create a well-documented maintenance concept. Based on the input during the sessions, the requested RCM analysis was executed and a solid advisory report was created.

A good example of added value and client cooperation is the enthusiasm of the participants in these RCM sessions. Participants in the sessions were enthusiastic about the RCM methodology, partly due to our transparent working method, professional discussions and their influence on the maintenance concepts.
