Reliability Centered Maintenance Analysis (RCMA)

•RCMA is a process for developing and implementing an effective scheduled maintenance program
•RCMA is a best-value added practice

FMECA Purpose: Analyzes What Can Fail. & How Critical Failures Are •Used During Design To Identify Areas Of Improvement •FMECA Data Is Required By RCM To Perform Its Analysis -Determines Consequences Of The Failure Modes -Identifies Failure Modes Which PM Seeks To Prevent 18 . Effects Of Failures.

Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) 19 .Failure Mode.

Failure Mode. Identify failure detection methods and compensating provisions • For each failure mode 20 . Define system 2. Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) 1. Evaluate each failure mode 5. Classify severity of failure modes 6. Identify potential item and interface failure modes 4. Construct diagrams 3.
