RCMTCC has assembled a dynamic team of experts with over 250 years of combined experience in nuclear Operations, Maintenance, Engineering, Reactor Safety and Licensing.  These highly qualified performance engineering team members (PET) have been chosen specifically because each has a proven track record of sustained high performance and delivering results.  Due to PET ’s seamless, cross-functional working paradigm, solutions reflect a multi-discipline approach that greatly increases their efficient execution through all process steps from conception to implementation and effectiveness and for every plant operating environment.

PET capabilities include:

  • Operations:
    • Innage and Outage Planning/Management
    • Troubleshooting
    • Commissioning
    • Lay-up/Safe Storage Support
    • Fuel Handling Management
    • Training Development (SAT and knowledge based), and Execution including licensing and simulator
    • Reactivity Management performance evaluations
  • Maintenance:
    • Risk based PM Optimization including ‘Value Based Maintenance’
    • Maintenance Efficiency Assessment and Optimization
    • Condition Based Monitoring implementation and assessment
    • I&C and Electrical Skills training
    • Troubleshooting
    • Outage Preparation and support
    • Pump, Air and Motorized Valve program support
  • Engineering:
    • System, Component and Design support
    • FLR and Equipment Reliability programs
    • Risk based (SCDF, LRF, etc.) conceptual design development
    • Asset management program development
    • Environmental Qualification Gap Analysis and Assessments

In addition, across all disciplines, RCMTCC’s PET has extensive experience with project, COMS and assessing support, peer mentoring, WANO Review preparedness, SCR evaluations and SOER biennial reviews and Root Cause methodology.

RCMTCC’s PET includes:

  • Previous CANDU licensed personnel at the ANO/CRO, CRS, SM and DOM level
  • Maintenance specialists including I&C and Electrical
  • Civil, Electrical, I&C and Mechanical Professional Engineers

RCMTCC’s PET has:

  • Crafted and executed new Aging Management governance that resulted in a greater than 90% reduction in Component Condition Assessment/Aging Management Action numbers and costs; obtained by leveraging the client’s existing integrated set of programs and activities along with their robust on-line and outage monitoring, testing and maintenance.
  • Created a methodology for extending EQ Qualified Life to support continued service beyond current end-of-life. Followed up by implementing the methodology on over 200 EQAs in support of extending the licenced operating life of a station and were able to identify life extending strategies for over 70% of the subject components.
  • Completed ahead of schedule, under budget and accepted by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) a client’s Integrated Implementation Plan (IIP) in advance of the submission deadline. The IIP project’s success was made possible by bringing together senior level industry experts with extensive knowledge of the client’s site and CNSC policies, programs, and personnel, promoting and capitalizing on cross-organizational teamwork.
  • Applied a Value Based Maintenance (VBM) methodology to over 7500 client PMIDs. Of those, over 3500 were identified as candidates for Run-To-Maintenance. Based on the information obtained through the client’s PASSPORT-based work management tool, the potential savings in eliminating these PMIDs represented annual costs saving of over $3.5M and maintenance savings of over 57,000 hours annually.
  • Worked with a client’s analysis team to create a series of simple modifications that reduced the station’s perennially high LRF and SCDF scores to the best in the Ontario CANDU fleet.

SMARTmanage identifies your organization’s objectives, leverages best practices, and customizes a solution uniquely designed to improve the effectiveness of your staffing initiatives.

Approach
The key to any successful service management program is a thorough understanding of the Client business needs and processes. By working together as partners with the Client, RCM is able to create a complete analysis from the information gathered during the assessment phase such as:

  • Current vendors
  • Historical review of consultants employed by department, technology, location, and dates
  • Review of costs by firm by consultant
  • Review of feedback repository on consultant performance
  • Review future plans and demands anticipated by Client for the next 12 – 18 months

Once the information is analyzed, RCM implements a structured standardized program customized to the Client’s specific needs that combined; (a) management experience, (b) people, (c) process improvements, and (d) technology enhancements thus optimizing the ability to streamline operations and reduce costs.

Benefits

  • Reduced overall costs to Client based on 12 months contract duration.
  • Improved productivity, performance and quality of work
  • Eliminated process redundancies assuring faster response and problem resolution
  • Streamlined communication by establishing an onsite based SMARTmanage Team
  • Improved project continuity  by providing a centralized pool of prequalified experienced resources
  • Standardized single source invoicing, timesheet collection and reporting
  • Improved staff utilization, workflow management and performance measurement
