Implemented correctly, Root Cause Analysis (RCA) identifies the defect, categorizes the major variable causes and uncovers cause and effect relationships between root causes and symptoms of the end failure. Preventing major failures not only impacts revenue, but it can also prevent injury and save lives. When an organization instead takes a firefighter approach to reactive maintenance, it leads to ongoing maintenance costs and is a major reason companies do not reach their asset performance targets.

In this eBook, we explore four key steps that help to decrease maintenance costs and improve your RCA program.

About Root Cause Analysis (RCA)

Root cause analysis (RCA) is a comprehensive problem-solving approach used to determine the underlining causes of non-desired performance. The “root cause” in RCA is the source for a particular failure or process breakdown.

An analogy would be the common cold. While headaches and coughs are symptoms of catching a cold, the virus is the root cause. Root cause failure analysis (RCFA) is often used interchangeably with RCA but is usually referenced specifically for mechanical or equipment failure.
