I spent the last few days in Charleston with Carey Repaz putting slides for our RCM 2011 workshop on developing a failure modes based maintenance strategy.  The workshop will include both lecture and hands on examples and I have to say I am very pleased with the finished product. 

I will also be presenting two case studies, the first with Derek Burley from Rio Tinto where we will discuss the age old question of; should you perform RCM on all of your assets or should you use equipment criticality and return on investment to determine what assets to perform RCM analysis on?  I have to say I am excited to present with Derek again as he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience every time we co-present.  Again the conclusion of this presentation will be very informative and may even surprise a few people.

The final case study involves the Cargill, Meat Solutions facility in Plainview Texas where we performed a RCM analysis on one of their critical assets last August.  The results of this RCM are a great example of what RCM can do for your business when you focus a team on performing a RCM analysis and implement the results.

 If you have not signed up for RCM 2011 these three presentations should provide all the incentive and information your company will need to make RCM Blitz™ a part of your business culture!
