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.
For a client in the waste and renewable energy, we have implemented a maintenance management system for the organic waste processing installations.
A logistics service provider in the port of Rotterdam has asked us to improve the internal processes and the cooperation within the maintenance organisation.

A client in the south of the Netherlands in the manufacturing industry has asked us to migrate their current maintenance registration system to Dynaway EAM. The aim of this project has been internal process improvement, which includes more tightly arranged quality requirements.
