Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) and PM Optimisation (PMO)

Many maintenance organisations face an excessive level of reactive or breakdown maintenance. This is expensive in terms of both maintenance cost and downtime consequences. Excessive reactive maintenance also contributes to a negative performance spiral that at best counters other valuable improvement initiatives and, in the worst case, leads to an almost completely reactive environment. This can be explained very simply. When breakdowns occur unexpectedly, resources are deployed to reactive work at the expense of Preventive Maintenance (PM). PM is missed due to scarce resources being consumed by breakdowns. As PM is missed, more preventable failures occur expanding the level of reactive maintenance. In many cases, the situation is compounded by band-aid maintenance, and morale adversely affected by long working hours under high pressure and continual firefighting.
