The RCM Scorecard
Terrence O'Hanlon in a lively conversation with Jack Nicholas
Jr. about the RCM Scorecard.
We all hear a lot of positive and negative reports about Reliability
Centered Maintenance (RCM) however most of the information is anecdotal
rather than based on the actual metrics or results.
Jack Nicholas Jr. to learn more about the emerging RCM Scorecard, a
metric based, results oriented method for assessing the results of your
Reliability Centered Maintenance program. Jack has been inspired and
influenced by RCM pioneers like Anthony "Mac" Smith and
Glenn Hinchcliffe, authors of
RCM - A Gateway to World Class Maintenance and active
practitioners like Doug Plucknette (of RCM Blitz®
fame), who along with
Jack, each originated many of the ideas and concepts that will be
explored in this workshop and roundtable.
of a Reliability Centered Maintenance Score Card is to provide RCM users
with a tool to help determine or demonstrate how successful a given RCM
analysis was based on criteria that can be measured prior to performing
an analysis, recommendations immediately following the analysis, and one
year after the analysis tasks have been implemented.
