What is RCM ?
serious the consequences of a failure, the
more time and effort should be spent on
trying to prevent it. This led the airlines
to use a formal evaluation of failure
consequences as a basis for deciding what
maintenance should be done. The
decision-making framework which they
developed to do this is at the heart of

Established in 1992
RCM was originally developed by the Federation of Aviation
Authority, partially funded by the US Government, in order to maintain civil
aircraft to a safer standard. Another objective was to develop a methodology for
compiling maintenance schedule for completely new type of aircraft to solve the
problem of insufficient failure data in the initial period.
RCM is the second
generation of the maintenance technique that was developed and applied over the
past thirty years in the most demanding maintenance arena -- civil aviation. The
development of RCM while aviation shifted from the DC 8 to the DC 10, a far more
complex aircraft, allowed items subject to overhaul to drop from 339 to 7, while
reliability and safety increased 240 %. Its numerous applications over the past
three decades in all major industries prove it to be the most advanced and
effective maintenance management method.
We are a member of the
Ivara / Aladon network since 1993.
All qualified RCM consultants are trained and certified in the
Europe or N. America for both classroom knowledge and practical project
Our network of consultants have implemented RCM in several
hundred corporations, worldwide. Our business philosophy is based on the
transfer of RCM operating technology and skills to our clients. This reduces the
need for expensive outsiders. The knowledge and skills developed by the RCM
review groups stays within your company. We train interdepartmental RCM review
groups composed of those people who know your machines best -- your operations
and maintenance people. The RCM skills they apply will not only give you the
most cost efficient maintenance schedules, increased production and improved
quality, but you will also foster teamwork between the maintenance and
Our RCM methodology
and implementation approach complies fully with the
JA 1011: "Evaluation Criteria for Reliability-centerd Maintenance
(Rcm) Process" (http://www.sae.org/technical/standards/JA1011_199908)

Reliability-centered Maintenance (Rcm)
What we provide
World-wide client portfolio
Our international background
enables us to deliver our service in
English, Putonghua (Mandarin) and Cantonese.
Our scope of service consists of the
"Introduction to RCM" Training Course
This three-day training course enables the delegates to
appreciate the basics of RCM and also to participate as members of the
about this course
"RCM Facilitator" Training Course
This ten-day RCM facilitator course enables the
delegates to conduct basic RCM analyses by leading a team of members who
have attended a three-day 'Introduction to RCM' Training Course.
RCM project is usually equipment or system based.
For clients who wish to train up their own RCM facilitators at a later
stage, we will manage and implement the project for them.
Our group have trained over
24,000 people on this technology, including
over half of the of the Fortune 100
companies. Our RCM methodology had been
applied to over 1000 sites belonging to over
475 companies, covering 40 countries over
the 6 continents and virtually every single
major industry, which includes:
- Power Generation,
Transmission & Distribution
- Nuclear Power
- Oil Refinery
Food and Beverage
- Metal and Refinery
- Paper and Pulp
- Electrical and
RCM has enabled companies to:

for new equipment .....
RCM was developed to compile maintenance
programmes for new types of aircraft before
they enter service.
This makes it ideally suited to the
development of maintenance programmes for
new equipment of all kinds, especially where
no history is available.
and for old .....
If RCM is used correctly to
re-assess the maintenance requires of
existing equipment, it transforms both the
requirements themselves and the way the
maintenance function as a whole is
perceived. The result is more
effective, more harmonious and much cheaper
