Training: Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) II


Maintenance starts with a clear answer to the question: "what is the correct maintenance strategy for a specific asset? Only then can it be determined with certainty which people are needed to do the work, which spare parts should be available to do the work and which systems can be used to control the work. 

Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM II) sheds light on this and provides a framework for the development of maintenance strategies. That is why BEMAS offers this three-day course with a highly qualified expert in the field. This course gives you an in-depth introduction to the theory, practice and benefits of RCM II.

Learning objectives

  • The theory behind RCM II
  • The steps for a practical application of RCM II (the course contains many practical exercises and case studies)
  • What you can achieve with RCM II and how to get there
  • What resources are needed for a successful implementation of RCM II?


  • Introduction to Reliability Centred Maintenance
  • Defining problems and collecting information
    •  Define desired functions and performance levels
    •  Establish ways in which the company's resources may not provide the desired performance (functional disturbance)
    •  Determining the causes of deviations (forms of interference)
    •  Describe the effects when errors occur (consequences)    

  • Malfunctions
    •  Assessing the risks of malfunctions
    •  Safety and warning components that may fail undesirably
    •  Disturbances with environmental or safety risks
    •  Disturbances affecting the production process or operational management (production level, production quality, delivery time)
    •  Malfunctions involving only direct repair costs    

  • Maintenance assessment
    •  Condition-dependent maintenance
    •  Periodic review
    •  Periodic replacement
    •  When, how often do you check the correct functioning?
    •  When to revise the design?
    •  When to wait for the fault to occur?    

  • Evaluate the effectiveness of the various proactive tasks and determine the frequencies of application    
  • Deployment of supervisors, production managers, fitters and specialists in MCR II groups    
  • Role of the MCR II supervisor
    •  Implementation strategies
    •  How to start?
    •  Determine what needs to be done if a proactive task cannot be found
    •  Grouping tasks into maintenance schedules
    •  Applying the MCR II process

Target audience
