RCM Experience – 20 years Facilitation, Training, Mentoring and IMPLEMENTATION
Ron’s Introduction to RCM started in 1995 where he had the opportunity to be trained, and more importantly, mentored by the best RCM practitioners in the world.
Ron led initial site wide RCM pilot projects amongst doing and implementing many other RCM analyses.
In 1999 Ron had the privilege to be trained and mentored by John Moubray, the Head of the Aladon network, developer of the RCM II methodology, world recognized RCM expert and author of the best RCM book, RCM II.
Ron has been training and mentoring RCM facilitators ever since, in addition to facilitating and implementing RCM analyses.
RCM Based Improvement Processes
Due to business needs and a lack of valid improvement processes, Ron developed a series of RCM based improvement processes.
PMO Pro®: A process to review and improve PM and Operator tasks.
RCS Pro®: A process to review and determine required spares.
RCFA Pro®: A process to reactively and proactively identify the causes of failures and prevent a reoccurrence.
RCPM Pro®: A process to manage the life cycle of a project such that it delivers its intended functionality.
These best practice improvement processes have been in use in many asset intensive industries for over 15 years.
RYKE provides the training, mentoring and facilitation services for these processes, and RCM II through the Aladon network, in both English and French.

Through practical experience, Ron developed a proven and repeatable process for improving the performance of asset intensive companies.
The RYKE way to Performance Turnarounds and Operations Readiness defines the culture of the organization where everyone is engaged in the sustainable performance of the assets.
The RYKE way defines:
How operators and maintainers interact with the equipment.
All workmanagement processes, roles and responsibilities.
Management systems: Meetings, reviews, leadership, etc.
For performance turnarounds, the RYKE way defines how to make the transition.
For Operations Readiness, the RYKE way ensures that the tasks, processes, the desired culture exists and all are executable and sustainable at start-up.
During a performance turnaround or an operations readiness initiative, Ron works with and at all levels in the organization to ensure the success of the initiative.
Ron's Operational and real change management experience, where he had to lead the changes in his own area while managing the day to day demands of production, is a large part of what has made these change processes so proven and so successful.
