Hi Friends ,

Can anybody briefly explain the use of RCMO along with R/3 SAP PM . I know a little bit like it can :

1. Reevaluate my maintenance strategy and can redefine it based on actual performance of FL or equipment .

RCMO is one tool . Is there any other tool that can be used along with SAP PM to enhance the maintenance functionality and also help to improve the machine performance

    RCMO is not a tool - it is a strategy of optimisation for reliabilty centred maintenance

    Example of a tool that integrates with SAP to achieve RCMO is Meridium

    Main function is to determine the optimum cycle frequency achieved by adjusting cycle modification factor in maintenance plan

    RCMO is RCM solution of Meridium which can be integrated with SAP.

    Similarly there are other products in the market which can be integrated with SAP like IVARA, ISOGRAPH, RCM Turbo, Reliasoft etc.

    Some of these (like IVARA or MERIDIUM) are enterprise tools which can be managed centrally and some of them are desktop tools (you download the notifications and run the analysis based on the data in the notifications and the tool will guide you which maintenance method (i.e. run-to-failure, preventive etc.) fits best for the asset.

    All of the above mentioned tools have different RCM methods (streamlined RCM, RCM II etc.) which are some variations of the classical RCM. Be mindful - classical RCM was developed as a strategy for defense (initially for submarines as far as I remember) so it may not be suitable for every industry.

    I hope this will help.

      RCM is use prominently in Industries where high level of Equipment reliability is expected based in the Risk Associated with them.

      The technique is used in Aircraft industry and now gained high acceptance with the Utility Generation Industries as well.
