A maintenance program designed by reliability engineers to fit any organization

If you struggle to complete and scale reliability centered maintenance (RCM) studies Reliability Strategies can be your ally. Its primary objective is to optimize equipment availability by minimizing the need to replace assets and reducing maintenance costs. Shifting away from run-to-failure or reactive maintenance entails a better understanding of how you equipment can breakdown and proactively mitigating the failures before they happen.

That’s why the IBM® Maximo® Application Suite offers an innovative combination: a purpose-built application and a content library for your RCM process. With the addition of Reliability Strategies and its supporting content library to this one-of-a-kind suite of applications, you can access the only solution on the market that integrates computerized maintenance management system (CMMS), enterprise asset management (EAM), asset performance management (APM) and now RCM in one single platform, accelerated by a robust failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) and job plan library.

Benefits Optimize your reliability centered maintenance 

Give the power of pre-built reliability best practices for over 800 equipment types to your reliability engineers. Knowing which maintenance tasks have proven track records of successful implementation and having a maintenance schedule is how you can deploy cost-saving strategies faster.

Improve asset reliability through effective maintenance 

Gain insight into functional failures through a dedicated failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) view, including over 50,000 universal failure modes spanning multiple operating contexts. This helps you assess components, assemblies, and subsystems to identify potential failure modes, their root causes, consequences of the failure and effects.

Deploy cost-effective tasks for all your pieces of equipment 

Reduce the guesswork and the unnecessary maintenance working hours with RCM analysis. By successfully implementing a RCM program, your team can reduce or eliminate tasks which have no impact on reliability or safety.

Reliability Strategies application
Streamline your maintenance strategy Drive condition-based maintenance further into the asset base with failure mode analysis. With this reliability centered maintenance app, your team can rapidly build strategies with corresponding job plan tasks using existing strategies in the library. Additionally, your organization can optimize predictive maintenance and preventive maintenance to ensure that your assets operate efficiently and reliably while minimizing costs.  Further, improving your RCM process and condition monitoring leads to more effective preventative tasks which helps reduce breakdowns and downtime, making your overall operational system and your bottom line more cost effective.
Reliability Strategies Library
Transform your RCM process Streamline your reliability strategies with the help of this library which contains more than 58,000 failure modes, 5,000+ preventive maintenance tasks with easy-to-follow instructions and reliability strategies for more than 800 physical asset types. This library allows your teams to understand time scales of degradation, identify wear-out and unnecessary processes, get preventive maintenance tasks mapped to failure modes and more. Ultimately, it allows your team members to streamline maintenance techniques and the decision-making process by leveraging extensive data and expertise from subject matter experts.
