Root Cause Analysis & Problem Solving
Today, more than ever, organizations are faced with the demands of providing quality products and services at a rapid rate. Competition doesn't allow for manufacturing downtime or repeat customer failures. Organizations are often forced to use a band-aid approach to "fix" problem quickly only to find the problem reoccurring. This reactive mode of problem solving uses up valuable time and resources that could be better spent identifying a long-term solution. Root Cause Analysis will allow you to identify the root cause of a problem and plan a long-term solution. By definition, Root Cause Analysis is the process of identifying the fundamental cause of a problem. You will learn how to flow through a problem-solving model, use problem solving tools to identify root causes, determine the appropriate action(s) to eliminate the cause, verify the effectiveness of the action taken and finally, how to ensure that improvements are built into the system.
Why Use a Problem Solving Process?
- To determine the true root causes of issues that are minimizing the profitability and customer satisfaction of your organization
- To equip quality improvement and problem-solving teams with the tools they will need to be successful in their charter
- To optimize the benefits from your Quality Management System’s corrective action process
