A Very Special RCM Workshop
Presented By The Man Who Wrote The Book 

BloomNeil Bloom,
the pioneering RCM expert and author of McGraw-Hill’s Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) Made Simple, will be offering a three-day RCM workshop intended for anyone with responsibilities for maintenance, engineering or reliability

Be advised: This is no ordinary RCM training. Attendees can expect to come out of this three-day workshop as RCM facilitators, qualified to develop successful RCM programs at their facilities using in-house resources and expertise. There will be an optional half-day at the end of the workshop for anyone who would like to meet with Neil on a more personal basis.

At this workshop, attendees will learn:

  • Why over 90% of all attempted RCM programs result in failure.
  • How to successfully implement a comprehensive RCM program without the need for outside expertise.
  • How to simplify (not streamline) an RCM program using in-house resources.
  • What the pitfalls of RCM are, and how to avoid them.   
  • Why the Consequence of Failure Analysis (COFA) is more comprehensive and easier to understand than the Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA).
  • Important differences between "functional failures" and "failure modes," and between "failure modes" and "failure causes."
  • How to establish synergistic strategies for the integration of preventive and corrective maintenance.
  • The fundamental concepts of "hidden failures" and the "Canon Law" of run-to-failure which are a vital but grossly misunderstood part of RCM.
  • How to develop an RCM "Living Program."
  • How to monitor and trend the RCM reliability performance of an entire plant.


When: November 27-29, 2012

At no extra charge, Neil Bloom will be available on Friday, Nov. 30 to mentor attendees on how to implement his RCM process on specific systems and equipment. For personal attention, bring your own plant-specific P&ID's, plant schematics or design drawings.

Registration will begin on November 27 at 7:00 a.m. Breakfast and coffee will be served at 7:00 a.m. each day, and the day’s instruction will begin around 8:00.

Where: Chicago Marriott O’Hare, Chicago, IL

Cost: $1750
