RCM / RCFA: Reliability Centered Maintenance and Root Cause Failure Analysis RCM / RCFA: 以可靠性为中心的维护与根本原因失效分析
The course provide advanced knowledge on Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) and Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA) as methodologies used for logical decision-making process for analysis and definition of the equipment maintenance requirements, as well as for accident prevention. The focus of the course is on the damage mechanisms appearing in different industries. A large number of well elaborated examples is included.
In the end of the course students will be able to answer the following questions:
  • What are different maintenance strategies?
  • Which strategy is to be applied in which case?
  • What is RCM and what are benefits?
  • What is RC(F)A and what are general analysis techniques?
  • What are types of damage and their specifics mechanisms?
  • What are general damage mechanisms, what are damage mechanisms specific for refining industry?
  • How reliable are NDT techniques and what are influencing factors.
