AudioSolutionz will host a live webinar, titled ‘A Step-by-Step Guide to Selecting the Right Tools for Root Cause Analysis’ by expert speaker Duke Okes, FASQ, CMQ/OE on Tuesday, November 1, 2016. Attendees to this session will get to know about the use of a structured approach to problem diagnosis. The webinar will also discuss the visual and mathematical tools for determining the causes of errors. Through examples, Duke will convey to participants why considering human error as the root cause is not a good idea.
Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a problem-solving mechanism that is used to identify root causes for different kinds of problems. Any factor which when removed prevents an undesirable event from reoccurring can be termed as the root cause. It must be noted here that there is a difference between root cause factor and causal factor. While the former affects the event's outcome as a root cause, the latter affects the event's outcome, but cannot be termed as the root cause. This is why removing a causal factor may benefit one outcome for the time, but it can never prevent its occurrence with total certainty.
Root cause analysis is used by organizations and businesses for responding to critical incidents as well as repetitive problems. It is primarily meant to identify root causes, which when dealt with, can prevent the reoccurrence of the issue in the future. However, many people are often not able to achieve expected results despite that. This usually happens because they tend to use 'System 1 thinking' instead of making use of a more robust analytical apparatus.
By attending this event, attendees will be able to have a clear understanding on a number of aspects related to root cause analysis, including:
- Differences between incident and repetitive problem analysis
- Documenting the sequence/process where the failure occurred
- Five best tools for identifying possible causes
- Visual and mathematical tools for evaluating the causes
- A 10-step problem-solving guide that provides more depth for the diagnostic steps than other models
- Tables for helping select which tools can be used for problem selection, possible cause identification, and data analysis
- Why human error must never be considered as a root cause
- And more!
