The world of maintenance continues to evolve and develop and is currently in its 4th  Generation with the focus very much on Technological advancements through The Internet of Things (IoT), Predictive Analytics, Interconnectivity, Defect Elimination, Standardization through adopting International Standards (that is, ISO 55000 and ISO 31000), Renewables, Social and Organizational Responsibility and Managing Physical and Economic Risks. RCM3 brings maintenance mainstream and aligns with organization’s physical asset management and risk management strategies through addressing the 4th Generation requirements.

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to RCM3 (Risk-based RCM) and its principles. It is intended for those who are interested in understanding what RCM3 is and how it can be applied to define risk-based maintenance and reliability programs from a strong technical base.

The application of RCM3 changes the way organizations think about their operations and maintenance (O&M). Not only does it challenge the traditional approach to equipment maintenance by moving you from a breakdown and repair mentality, it creates a new culture of risk-based asset management. It revolutionizes views about maintenance and how maintenance, operations and engineering should work together to drive asset performance through full asset life-cycle. RCM3 builds on the very robust RCM2 methodology with a refreshing new look on how to manage the risks associated with protective devices and how to manage the risks associated with preserving asset functions. The risk-based decision logic optimizes the maintenance program (develop the minimum amount of safe maintenance required to preserve the asset functions) while managing the physical and economic risks.

This introduction to RCM3 redefines your understanding of physical and economic risk management and will completely transform the way how organizations and O&M view the development of maintenance programs and their roles and responsibilities in that process. This course applies best practices by addressing the nine steps of RCM3 using a real life, case study approach. The participants will explore the techniques required to define a risk-based maintenance program in a logical and structured way that recognizes the risks associated with equipment failures.

Note that this course is also a requirement for becoming a Certified RCM3 Facilitator. It is a prerequisite for anyone who plans to attend the 10-day Advanced RCM3 Facilitator Training course in the Aladon Certified Facilitator Program.
