RCM Facilitation - An 8 Day Intensive Course

 

Course Instructors - Kenneth Lees BSc, MSc and V. Narayan BMech, DipEE, DIM (Click on name to View Profile)

OUTLINE

RCM teams work under the guidance of highly trained specialists in RCM, known as facilitators. Of all the factors that determine the success of any RCM program, the skill of the facilitator is the most important. RCM must be performed and implemented by an organisation itself. This training seminar will develop the expertise required to enable appropriate analyses to be carried out in-house ensuring competence development and reduced overall cost. The syllabus also includes a thorough grounding in the application of RCM, managing an RCM study, running effective meetings, time management and successful implementation of RCM including management presentation and setting up a living program. In this way, empowered teams remain empowered, ownership is retained and enhanced and companies begin to win the asset management battle.

PROJECT SUPPORT

After completion of the training, we strongly recommend that M2K retain one RCM specialist on site for an additional period of one week to assist the newly trained facilitators select and begin working on a project. We do not undertake the analyses but will provide expertise and support to enable appropriate analyses to be carried out in-house ensuring competence development and reduced overall cost.

M2K have internationally recognised expertise in development and successful implementation of RCM methods tailored to a number of industrial sectors. They have also been consulted by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and British Standards Institute (BSI) on RCM, maintenance improvement, reliability and availability modelling.
