Risk Centered Spares (RCS) Software
Optimize Inventory & Spare Parts with RCS Software
RCS is an extension of the RCM process, designed to determine the minimum amount of spares to keep for supporting maintenance and operations at all levels. REW uses failure data and recommended risk management strategies (e.g. planned maintenance or one-time change), generated through the RCM process, to evaluate the spare part requirements. REW captures the effects of a stock-out and uses this information and complex algorithms to calculate stocking levels. Spare parts that can be anticipated are treated differently from the ones where spare part requirements cannot be anticipated (for failure that can not be predicted or prevented). REW uses strong algorithms for calculating optimum spare parts based on important criteria for increasing availability and reliability while lowering cost and risk.
