Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM)
For Onshore & Offshore Process Facilities

Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) is a proven methodology for developing effective maintenance strategies. It is a reliability optimization tool that captures daily decisions on repair procedures, their impact on planned execution and analyze the information for understanding future reliability, resulting in:

Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM)

Doing the right things at the right time
Applications of appropriate strategies for each type of costequipment
Employing the right tool
Identifying and correcting the faults quickly
Taking appropriate actions with required information being captured

Software tool used for RCM

VAIL-RCM is a VELOSI in-house developed RCM tool which provides RCM Analysis, Data Management and Reporting. This software is based on OREDA Offshore Reliability Data 2002 Standards and provides extensive Customization Capabilities. It helps to analyze RCM in three levels (FMEA/FMECA, Risk Analysis and Plant Maintenance Routines). Its key features include:
In-built FMEA and reliability data for equipment based on OREDA, works like an expert system
Capability to perform FMECA, risk analysis and planned maintenance routines
Advance reporting features (incl. Trends)
Advanced user view capabilities
MTBF & MTTR strategy for reliability analysis
Risk matrix methodology
Advance data importing/exporting features

The benefits of using RCM

Identify and correct chronic recurring equipment problems
Avoid production losses caused by unexpected failures of critical equipments
Increase intervals between turnarounds
Decrease in hidden failures & process trips
Identify equipment that is deemed ’non-critical’
Eliminating many unnecessary maintenance tasks VAIL-RCM Analysis Levels
VAIL-RCM performs FMECA (Failure Mode, Effects, and Criticality Analysis) based on its in-built database (OREDA offshore reliability database) in the most effective and efficient way
Operator reliability data (OREDA:2002)
Risk analysis
Preventive maintenance routines
