Application of RCM and FMEA Methodology to Improve Industrial Maintenance Management: A Case Study of Fibers for Mattresses

José Alfredo Carazo Luna, Moisés Manzano Herrera, Esmeralda Pérez Cruz, Viridiana Vásquez Santos


In industrial manufacturing, there are techniques that can identify certain risks in the processes that cause inconsistencies in the operation of equipment, hazards for the operator and waste. One of the supports of industrial engineering in the company are the Preventive Maintenance (PM) tasks that focus their efforts on analyzing the operation of critical devices that could degrade the quality of the products obtained. Companies that have an average system of attention to machinery and equipment perform corrective maintenance (CM) or preventive maintenance tasks that are not very successful, due to a deficient knowledge or training in repair, which generates high percentages of waste, low quality, and even reprocessing. Failure mode and effects analysis and reliability-centered maintenance are systematic tools based on team working which usually can be used for identify, prevent, eliminate or control the potential errors causes of failure in a system or process. In this paper, it is intend to reorganize preventive maintenance planning and obtain effective results with all the information and data available specifically on a machine dedicated to the transformation of a raw material to obtain fibers used in mattress filling.

Keywords: Preventive Maintenance, Failure mode and effect analysis, reliability centered maintenance.
