European Master and Certification Program
in Risk Engineering and Management

Learn how to use RCM and RCFA methodologies for logical decision-making process related to the equipment maintenance and for accident prevention.

II-R05 RCM&RCFA
Reliability Centered Maintenance and Root Cause Failure Analysis

December 7 - 10, 2012

Lecturer: Daniel BaloŇ°

Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) and Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA) are 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.

The course provides advanced knowledge on Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) and Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA). It explains why these two methodologies are commonly used for logical decision-making process for analysis and definition of the equipment maintenance requirements, as well as for accident prevention.

In the end of the course attendees will be able to answer following questions:

  • What are different maintenance strategies?
  • Which strategy is to be applied in which case?
  • What are trendable and what are non-trendable damage mechanisms?
  • 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.

The course is intended for staff mostly dealing with maintenance work in petroleum, process and power industries.
