RCM-R(R) Orange Belt First Project (for up to 5 Yellow Belt Candidates)
- Please note that this course has the following prerequisites which must be completed before it can be accessed
- RCM-R(R) Basic Yellow Belt Certification
About CourseReliability Centered Maintenance is the top method for formally defining effective failure management strategies for physical assets in their present operating contexts. It has been well-proven to be highly successful in achieving cost savings, production increases, safety, and environmental performance improvements. Basic RCM complies with the standard, SAE JA-1011. RCM-R goes well beyond that compliance with several enhancements.
This pilot project is a natural follow-on to our RCM-R Yellow Belt Certification course. In that course students learn the RCM-R method and earn their Yellow Belt, certifying that they have been trained. This course builds on that learning with the completion of an RCM-R project. If completed, submitted, and assessed to be of good quality, this analysis counts as one of two required for the RCM-R Orange Belt Certification for your analysis team.
Team-members must all have completed and achieved the RCM-R Yellow Belt Certification. For them, the second required project for Orange Belt Certification must be facilitated by a certified RCM-R facilitator.
This offering includes the various worksheets needed for recording your analysis (you don’t need expensive software), our review, and feedback on your completed effort. The analysis work submitted in this project can be used as part of the Orange Belt Certification requirements for up to 5 analysts who have already obtained their Yellow Belts.
Our RCM-R textbook (not included) contains all the content covered in depth.
