Root cause analysis provides an effective technique for identifying the causes of significant problems, for defining actions to prevent recurrence of these events, and to drive continuous improvement within an organization.? The technique is applicable to the determination of the causes of equipment and system failures and malfunctions, as well as identifying the causes of errors in human performance.? This approach has been successfully utilized in many industries and applications, and is compatible with corporate quality and performance improvement initiatives.
Learn the overall approach for performing root cause investigations and how this technique fits into your current quality and lessons learned processes.? Also, develop an appreciation for the types of tools that can be utilized to conduct the analysis, and gain insight through selected root cause analysis examples.
