CodeRed Business Solutions Inc. (CRBS) has successfully implemented a sustainable RCM program at St. Louis Metro that has served the agency for more than 10 years in reducing maintenance and operating costs, improving customer satisfaction and delivering a reliable method to improve short and long-term maintenance budgeting.
The CRBS team has the expertise to develop a structured RCM that will ultimately reduce your agency’s maintenance costs over time through the use of effective planning in order to assure the correct parts and resources are available. In addition, an effective designed and executed RCM will reduce your overall labor costs, breakdowns and rework due to poor maintenance diagnostic skills.
Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) is a process to ensure that assets continue to do what their users require in their present operating context. It is generally used to achieve improvements in fields such as the establishment of safe minimum levels of maintenance, changes to operating procedures and strategies and the establishment of capital maintenance regimes and plans. Successful implementation of RCM will lead to increase in cost effectiveness, machine uptime, and a greater understanding of the level of risk that the organization is managing.
The result is a maintenance program that focuses scarce economic resources on those items that would cause the most disruption if they were to fail. RCM emphasizes the use of Predictive Maintenance (PdM) techniques in addition to traditional preventive measures.
