Determination of the root cause

You want to determine a root cause

Why implement a root cause determination?

Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a problem-solving method that identifies the root causes of problems. Its purpose is to avoid treating the symptoms rather than the real problems. A factor is considered a root cause if its removal from the problem-fault sequence prevents the undesirable end result from recurring. 

Root Cause Analysis is essentially based on four general principles:

  • Properly define and describe the event or problem.
  • Establish a timeline from the normal situation to the final crisis.
  • Distinguish between root causes and the causal factor.
  • Once implemented, Root Cause Analysis is transformed into a method of predicting problems.

Implementing Root Cause Analysis will help the organization to:

  • Identify barriers and causes of problems, in order to find permanent solutions.
  • Develop a logical approach to problem solving.
  • Determine current and future organizational improvement needs.

The support of a competent root cause laboratory is therefore essential to solve your problems in a sustainable manner.
