Workshop on Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM)

We are pleased to inform that CII IQ, TPM Club India is organizing a unique 3-day Workshop on Reliability Centered Maintenance on 22,23 and 24 Jan 2020 at Chennai.

Planned Maintenance (A Salient Pillar of TPM), could be explained as a specialized activity performed by the Plant Maintenance team members, which principally focuses on the improvement of equipment reliability and maintainability by restoration and sustenance of the Optimal conditions, at the most economic cost. With the rapid improvement of Equipment technologies, varieties and the number of physical assets, higher expectations of the management for increased asset utilization combined with several internal and external challenges, Plant Maintenance as a niche discipline has evolved with great expertise in the past twenty years.

In this operating scenario, the demands placed on the maintenance team has also increased manifold items for ensuring smooth functioning of the Equipment/ Machineries. Newer techniques, tools and methodologies need to be integrated along with the daily maintenance practices.

To cater to this requirement, a 3- day workshop on the RCM principles and its application has been planned exclusively.


The objectives of the workshop are to enable the participants to:

  • Understand different types of Failure Patterns and Maintenance types
  • Understand various aspects of Planned Maintenance activities (A part of TPM implementation) along with practical insights on the implementation methods
  • Understand the framework of RCM (Reliability Centered Maintenance) principles
  • Integration of RCM, with the Planned Maintenance activities
  • Gain practical insights on the application of RCM as a tool for implementation
  • Method of conducting a FMECA for an Equipment or a critical machine

RCM as a tool could be applied for any critical equipment with respect to Safety, Environment or from the Operational point of view.

The RCM tool, as a failure management strategy, could also be perfectly synchronized with the currently practiced Planned Maintenance activities of a JIPM ~ TPM practicing company. As a company advances in implementation of TPM, applying RCM principles become essential for understanding and application of the proactive maintenance techniques.

Following main topics would be dealt with in detail:

  • Maintenance categories
  • Machine Structure and Operating Contexts
  • RCM Principles
  • Functions based approach
  • Functions – Classifications and types
  • Functional failures, Failure Modes
  • Failure Effects and Consequences
  • Decision Diagram for Criticality Analysis
  • FMECA Application
  • RPN calculations and reduction
  • CBM principles and examples, etc.


  1. In addition to the faculty inputs and classroom exercises, Participants would have identify Equipment from the host company and develop the working methodologies of RCM
  2. The pattern of the course is tailor made to suit the requirements of both the Engineering, Service and Process Industries
  3. Since this is an intensive maintenance related course, the daily closing timings are flexible and participants would be expected to spend some extended hours on all the 3 days. Basic knowledge of Machine Maintenance (Any discipline) would be an advantage.


  • Plant Maintenance personnel who are responsible for Equipment/ Machinery maintenance
  • Maintenance personnel taking care of proactive maintenance activities (TBM, IR, CM etc..) in a manufacturing facility
  • TPM Coordinators who are responsible for TPM implementation at their Plants
  • Manufacturing Heads, Engineering Heads, Engineers, Senior Managers and Managers from Manufacturing, Process, Engineering and Maintenance departments from the industries.

The Workshop will be theory and practical session inside the factory
