Develop optimal maintenance strategies
With Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) at its core, the RCMCost module of Availability Workbench™ enables you to determine the best maintenance strategies based on reliability prediction techniques and operational data provided.
It helps you calculate the cost of failure modes by comparing the benefit against alternative strategies. Plus, by examining each critical failure mode to determine the optimum maintenance strategy, you can reduce the severity of each failure while considering cost, safety, environmental and operational consequences.
Then, once optimal maintenance policies are in place, RCMCost provides system performance predictions for expected resource and spare parts requirements so you can create budget forecasts.
Predict lifetime maintenance costs, spares costs and usage, maintenance crew manning requirements, safety and environmental risks and operational performance.
Link your failure mode parameters to the data analysis engine to ensure simulation forecasts are up to date. Models can be built from assumptions, generic libraries or linked to your ERP system to use the latest available data.
System Hierarchy Diagrams
Graphically construct system hierarchy diagrams; and generate and print a list of functions, failures, failure modes and effects for each maintainable item hierarchy.
Failure Mode Identification
Quickly and easily identify critical failure modes in a systematic and structured manner to complete a Failure Mode Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA).
Optimization plots make it easy to view alternative maintenance scenarios side by side, evaluate maintenance tasks over a lifetime, and select the optimal strategies.
Connect Strategy to CMMS
Seamlessly connect to SAP and Maximo. With optimal strategies loaded directly into your CMMS, you can ensure the right strategies are executed.
RCM Data Storage
Capture and preserve engineering knowledge quantitatively, by updating strategies from work order history.
Update a plant model when new data is available, or design changes take place to continually improve and develop living strategies.
