Preparing for the Analysis

Extensive Configuration Options

RCM++ provides predefined profiles that make it easy to configure the analysis workspace to fit the major RCM and FMEA reporting standards (such as ATA MSG-3 and SAE JA1011/1012 for RCM and SAE J1739, AIAG and MIL-STD-1629A for FMEA). In addition, the software offers flexible capabilities to customize any of the sample profiles or create your own settings to meet the specific needs of your organization. Some of the configuration options include the ability to:

Support for Large, Multi-Level System Configurations (Including FRACAS Integration)

RCM++’s flexible System Hierarchy interface allows you to manage large, multi-level system configurations with as many levels as you need (and any number of items per level). You can fully define the properties for each item (e.g., supplier, part number, reliability characteristics) and you can perform RCM and related analyses at any level within the configuration.

To save time and ensure consistency, you can automatically import system configuration data from an external Bill of Materials file or from ReliaSoft's XFRACAS web-based failure reporting and incident tracking system. For an enterprise database, you can maintain a direct link to the XFRACAS system, which makes it easy to resynchronize at any time. This FRACAS connection also enables the FMEA team to tap into valuable information about failure modes that are observed during testing and in the field, including incident quantities and new failure modes that may not have been considered yet.

Analysis Plans

The Analysis Plan utility keeps track of team members, ground rules and assumptions, scheduled work sessions and other details that will help you plan and manage your analysis projects. RCM++ provides a high-level overview of all pending analysis projects and also makes it easy to generate reports for individual project plans.

Enhanced in Version 10!

Boundary Diagrams and Interactive FMEA Block Diagrams

Boundary diagrams can help to define the scope of a particular analysis project and also may provide additional information that will be useful to the analysis team when they attempt to identify potential failure modes. If you don't have existing diagram files that you wish to attach to the project, RCM++ allows you to build these diagrams and store them together with your RCM and FMEA analyses.

An FMEA block diagram is a visible depiction of the system or assembly that will be analyzed in a design FMEA. In Version 10, these diagrams are now interactive with both the system hierarchy and the FMEA. Specifically, the new utility starts building the diagram automatically based on the components in the selected branch of the system hierarchy. Then you can add blocks for any additional factors (e.g., human interactions) and draw the appropriate connections (physical, material exchange, energy transfer or data exchange) to complete the diagram. Finally, you can choose to automatically create functions for selected interactions as a starting point for the FMEA (e.g., "Energy Transfer from Component A to Component B").
