Using FMEA and RCM to Reduce Equipment FailuresSee upcoming dates
Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) and reliability-centered maintenance (RCM) are two similar, but different, complementary step-by-step approaches for identifying potential failure modes for a machine.
In this course, you will learn:
- The applications of RCM and FMEA
- How FMEA and/or RCM can improve the reliability of your key assets
- How to perform an equipment FMEA
- The steps for completing the RCM process
Who Should Attend?
- Maintenance and asset managers
- Plant and facility engineers
- Reliability engineers
- Managers of preventive or condition-based and predictive maintenance programs
- CMMS coordinators or managers
- Maintenance leads and technicians
This course is part of the Maintenance and Reliability Management Certificate. Enhance your maintenance skills, while earning a recognized credential.

Asset Criticality Analysis Workshop
Implementing FMEA and/or RCM Processes: How to
- Sell the benefits of FMEA and RCM management, technicians, and production
- Form and manage the team - FMEA and RCM
- Streamline (faster with less effort and high-quality results)
- Identify functional requirements of production and facility assets
- Identify the failure modes for each functional requirement
- Define the effects for each failure mode
- Define the root causes of each failure mode
- Identify current controls that will prevent the cause of failure modes or detect a failure mode before an asset breaks down or that will mitigate the effects of a failure mode
- Brainstorm proactive actions that will reduce the risk or likelihood of an asset/equipment breakdown
- condition-based monitoring or predictive maintenance technologies
- preventive maintenance programs
- replacement part inventories
- Implement proactive actions
