Root Cause Analysis (RCA) Process
Don't put a bandage on a problem; fix the issue permanently. Root cause is the fundamental, underlying reason for a problem. This course allows you to identify the cause of a problem, solve it, and prevent it from occurring again. This saves your organization time, money, and resources.
This in-depth course begins with an introduction to identifying the causes of daily operational problems and concludes with participants using root cause analysis techniques to identify solutions to real-world problems.
In this course, participants will learn how to:
- Define a problem and identify associated constraints;
- Define the Root Cause Analysis (RCA) process;
- Identify trends and similarities;
- Structure the problem and identify the impact through data collection and analysis;
- Use the proper techniques and tools to identify the root cause of a problem (data analysis);
- Develop recommendations;
- Identify alternative solutions;
- Implement the selected solution;
- Monitor the implementation and collect feedback (Document for tractability and maintainability);
- Implement a continuous improvement process.
