Certificate in Root Cause Analysis

In stock


Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is an analytic process designed to help identify the underlying factors that have contributed to or have directly caused a major adverse event or systems failure. The results of an RCA are typically utilized to guide and direct changes to processes, the environment, and human behavior in order to prevent or reduce the probability that the adverse event will occur in the future.

The workshop will be an interactive and knowledge packed team building session which is disciplined and constructive. The methodologies will be based on team building approach, it supports outlining the course step by step, encouraging the team to be creative and building the case study.

Day 1

Quiz I: Self Assessment

  • Self Evaluation; Paradigme of RCA; The Score.

Phase I: Developing The Team And The Project Charter

  • Problem identification: information gathering by using all existing sources as part of the investigation;
  • Choice the RCA methodology: 5P, 8D, Ishikawa, 5Why, PDCA, TOPS, Shanin (RedX);
  • Build RCA case & the team: map the road map for the RCA case. Choose the core team & steering committee.

Phase II: Interview Techniques & Investigation

  • Data History & Analysis: ensure data is used to trend chronical event;
  • Interview: techniques to trig right information. Monitor and track information using CMMS & other systems;

Exercise I: Mapping The Project (Case)

  • Case from your own process: project title, data numbering, chart and trends;
  • Develop the RCA Case: project charter. Interview techniques and identification of PoC. 

Phase III: Logic Tree & Finding

  • Hypothesis: escalate the hypothesis per mode and avoid recurrence;
  • Error Identification & Classification: each error is qualified based on the evidence;
  • Potential Cause: direct failure is the potential cause with high consequence.

Exercise II: Map the Logic Tree

  • Map the Logic Tree: RCA layers. Identify the appropriate hypothesis per mode. Conduct the analysis and quantify the impact of occurrence. Highlight the potential cause with given reason.
