Root cause analysis is a problem-solving and continuous improvement tool used to prevent defects from recurring by identifying their causes.
The RCA module is designed to identify critical equipment by consequence or risk, with the capacity to analyze failure modes and operation to determine their relative importance in equipment interruptions and generate an action plan. The following analyses are included:
Once the analysis is performed and the root causes are identified, an action plan must be generated to resolve the causes and continue tracking.
Finally, it enables customization of standards and/or manuals that need to be updated, incorporating time periods and dates for this to occur.
The result is a deliverable document that includes the analysis performed and tracking of the different plans scheduled for resolving the problem and support for continuous improvement.
