RCM3: The Next Generation of Reliability Maintenance

RCM3: The Only Process You Need for All Your Assets

Everything we’ve learned over many years of researching and testing Reliability Centered Maintenance – has gone into improving and enhancing our methodology and RCM3™. And, everything we keep learning with each passing milestone makes RCM3 even better.

Aladon developed RCM3 as an enhanced version of RCM2™, the trademark methodology for Aladon.

RCM3 exceeds SAE standards and broadens RCM2 capability to align with more recent and international accepted ISO Management Systems (ISO 55000 and ISO 31000). Additionally, RCM3 is fully integrated with other Business Risk Management Systems like RBI and HAZOP.

RCM3 is no longer just another initiative, but a mainstream business risk management process that could become the most important management system for improving Process Safety and Asset Integrity. Our new risk-based methodology is the only process companies need to maintain and optimize all their assets (rotating and static).

Effective. Tested. Groundbreaking.

The development of the RCM3 risk-based approach started with John Moubray more than 30 years ago and has continued through Aladon Network Members who have helped develop the original concepts and have tested the methodology with many world-class facilities. The results of their pioneering work have been groundbreaking. RCM3 has been implemented successfully in many Blue Chip Companies with results that exceed the expectation of most. The RCM3 process is much more intuitive and more maintenance decisions are being made by the review groups (people who know the equipment best) than ever before. Less recommendations are referred to upper management for final approval – the RCM3 process is more robust and transparent and our clients love it! RCM3 is the best response to the challenges and expectation brought by the Fourth Generation Maintenance.

RCM3 is now the process industry’s most advanced method for managing maintenance and operations to control costs and boost overall productivity. Our aim is to continue to explore new technologies and trends working with our global Network and Technology Partners to lead the world with our world class training courses and robust methodologies.

A progression table from RCM2 to RCM3 illustrates the extended capabilities of RCM3, which may be viewed here. RCM3 is now the new standard for how organizations manage their operational risks and improve asset integrity.
