Root Cause Analysis: Fundamentals

Tony O'Brien, Wintec

Develop your problem-solving skills with RCA

The root cause is the core issue of any problem. When it is correctly identified, you can determine the most effective solution to help minimise cost, disruptions, and the chance of it happening again.

On this three-week course, you’ll learn how to use the Root Cause Analysis (RCA) methodology to help you succeed in a modern manufacturing environment.

You’ll develop sought-after problem-solving skills and use RCA to prevent any further losses when a problem occurs. You’ll learn how to identify the importance of the problem, who should be involved, how the problem should be defined, and learn to complete a detailed analysis to identify the solutions to sustain improvements.

Increase productivity with proactive management

By developing a detailed understanding of RCA methodology, you’ll learn to take a systematic approach to failure prevention in both your work environment and in the wider world.

This moves you from reacting to failures and putting out fires to a higher productivity state through proactive management and failure prevention.

Explore root cause analysis tools

You’ll identify and use a range of tools available for analysis of problem situations to help you put your knowledge into practice.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to define problems accurately through processes such as troubleshooting techniques, templates for format and flow, and how to identify possible causes using 4WIH and fishbone diagrams.

This course is designed for those working in or seeking to work in the manufacturing industry.

You may contribute to identifying equipment failure in your work environment or you could be involved with health and safety investigations.
