Root Cause Analysis (RCA) and Corrective Action (CA) for continual improvement
RCA is an objective, thorough, and disciplined methodology employed to determine the most probable underlying cause of problems and undesired events within an organization, with the aim of implementing CA to mitigate or eliminate those causes. RCA is a tool designed to help identify not only what and how an event occurred, but also why it happened. Only when investigators are able to determine why an event or failure occurred will they be able to specify workable CA to prevent future events of the type observed.
RCA methods are crucial in the investigation of near-misses, accidents, and incidents and in preventing recurrent non-conformities. This course provides instruction on RCA problem solving and CA plan processes you can immediately apply within your organization to start making improvements to your operational performance. This course is for individuals, teams, and organizations that want to implement an “operating system” for structured problem-solving.
This course will help you:
- Differentiate between remedial actions and RCA
- Implement steps for carrying out effective RCA
- Select from and apply various RCA methodologies
- Support and critique RCA carried out by others
- Implement and monitor appropriate corrective actions to avoid future incidents
