Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) identifies the equipment in a facility that requires maintenance on a preventive basis improving the reliability threshold to almost a hundred percent. This technique is very valuable especially when considering that budgets are limited and incurring unplanned interruptions of the operation are unacceptable. RCM allows management to make important decision on the proper action to take and the components to focus their efforts on while reducing costs and remaining competitive.
This intensive course will cover fundamentals of RCM and implementation by following the processes and employing the tools available. Students will gain understanding of “Consequence of Failure Analysis (COFA)”, previously known as the “Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA)”, as part of the process used to develop a Premier Reliability Program.
The course is intended for all Engineering, Maintenance, and Reliability personnel who are involved with any aspect of the Corporations’ Preventive Maintenance Program (PM Program).
The goal of this course is to present the student with the knowledge to understand, learn, establish, and implement a Modern Day World Class RCM Program.
- Fundamental Concepts of RCM
- Implementation and Tools used in RCM
- FMEA vs COFA
- Applications of RCM in the different industries.
- Understanding of processes required to implement and manage a Reliability Centered Maintenance Program
- Ability to provide analysis and action plans as a result of systematic evaluation of the maintenance program
- Instructed by internationally known expert and author with more than 38 years of experience in the field.

Bloom, Neil B.
Neil Bloom has 38+ years experience in engineering reliability practices, of which he spent 21 years at San Onofre Nuclear plant supporting engineering, licensing and working with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. For 15 years he led engineering and maintenance at Eastern Airlines, working with the FAA.
A mechanical engineer by profession, he started out in the commercial aviation industry, where the methods of RCM first originated. Over his many years in aviation and nuclear power, he has seen how RCM can become difficult to implement; and most of those who try it end up throwing their hands into the air with a sigh of defeat and despair. Now, he has changed all of this so that even laypersons can facilitate their own RCM programs using only in-house resources. Additionally, ...Read More
