Root Cause Analysis Training
Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a management process that seeks to locate the ultimate root causes behind performance or process-related problems, and then proceed to resolve the problem by treating these underlying causes, thereby eliminating or reducing the anomalous impact such as maintenance cost. The critical importance of this is the prevention of recurring failures.
In summary, the goals of RCA are:
Failure identification – identifying what exactly went wrong
Failure analysis – analysing why it happened, discovering the root cause
Failure resolution – providing a solution that prevents recurrence
Root Cause Analysis has been widely applied in diverse fields and industries, including the chemical, petrochemical, power generation, transportation, healthcare and construction industries.
Duration: 2 Days
All personnel / team members directly involved in continuous improvement / quality improvement initiatives from both the manufacturing and service (including banking and finance, logistics, healthcare, government and public service) sectors
This 2-day Root Cause Analysis training aims to provide in-depth and practical knowledge of root cause analysis. Through practical exercises and case studies, participants will learn how to apply the various methods of root cause analysis.
