By implementing RCM, our operation and maintenance philosophy is not based on OEM recommendations. The driving factor for this is based on research findings from engineering experts that for certain equipment unnecessary dismantling and reassembly of parts during maintenance, incurs the bathtub curve of infant mortality rate. In other words, the system is subject to initial failure each time such maintenance is carried out.

In order to minimise this, YTLPS has devised a Preventive Maintenance and Condition Monitoring strategy which prioritises maintenance activities according to relevant key factors. Work Improvement Teams are also established regularly to:




Review OEM recommendations via research and experiments.

Propose new recommendations for preventive maintenance to extend component life and reduce wastage.

Implement new recommendations based on findings.
