WHAT IS ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS (RCA)?
Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a methodology for finding and correcting the most important reasons for performance problems. It is different from troubleshooting and problem-solving as these disciplines typically seek solutions to specific difficulties, whereas RCA is directed at underlying issues.
This course teaches how to lead investigations and root cause analyses using various techniques such as Causal Factor Charting, Fault Tree Analysis and Root Cause Charts.This workshop has been designed for those who are expected to conduct root cause analyses in the workplace.
You will develop an understanding of four different investigative methods, each method with its own advantages and disadvantages.
