Reliability-Centered Maintenance

KBRwyle’s approach to Reliability Centered Maintenance is based on the SAE JA 1011 and focuses on a structured process to determine the optimal failure management strategies for any system, based on system reliability characteristics and the operating environment.

This approach provides effective technical solutions to achieve optimum reliability, availability, and maintainability of military equipment. We focus on understanding the problem and practical application of methods to overcome obstacles and reach resolution. Methods include but are not limited to:

  • System reliability models, Life Data Analysis (Weibull), Risk Analysis, Reliability Growth and Reliability Prediction, Statistical Process Control (SPC)
  • Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA)/Failure Mode, Effects, and Criticality Analysis (FMECA), Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)
  • Reliability Benchmarking, Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM), Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics, Root Cause Failure Analysis
  • Level of Repair Analysis (LORA)

This extensive approach results in:

  • Identification and elimination of unreliable components
  • Elimination of un-necessary and ineffective maintenance
  • Improved troubleshooting and fault diagnostics
  • Effective use of predictive and preventative maintenance
  • Decrease in unscheduled corrective maintenance
  • Optimized intervals and increased effectiveness of maintenance activities
  • Realization of inherent reliability and managed cost of ownership
