Reliability is fundamental to any business. Machines that do what they are supposed to do, when it is expected of them, support productivity and sdf competitiveness to a great extent. Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM) is a renowned method for achieving world-class reliability through optimal maintenance.
By applying RCM you can answer the question "what is the right maintenance strategy for a certain asset? you can answer. You know which spare parts should be ready, which people should be scheduled at what time and which systems can be used for control.
