Protomatic Offers Class in Root Cause Analysis

Root Cause Analysis

When something doesn’t operate correctly or breaks down, you’ve got a problem. An even bigger one is if the same problem comes back again and again.

To keep that from happening, you need to know why the failure occurred in the first place. That’s what you’ll learn in this practical class at Protomatic.

Get to the “root” of the problem

Root Cause Analysis is a group process leading to the listing of all possible reasons and outcomes associated with a particular problem or situation. It helps identify what, how and why something happened, thus preventing recurrence.

Course description

Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a course where participants learn the tools of RCA by actually using them. The course begins by focusing on team skills such as brainstorming and developing consensus on the statement of the problem, then working through eight common tools to find root causes of problems with either fabricated or real scenarios. The course closes by examining issues and concerns related to implementing an RCA system.
