Root Cause Investigations

Young science students making experimentsRoot Cause Analyses: Focus in Manufacturing

When there is a production problem, root cause analysis can find a solution. Assuming that the question, “Why?” is asked often enough. Root cause analysis with corrective action addresses the question “Why is the product nonconforming in the first place and how do we avoid having more of it in the future?” This may take considerable investigation and an investment of time.

A correctly performed root cause analysis has depth and breadth–concepts that will be explained. A Fishbone diagram illustrating the typical problem, “Nonconforming product has been sent to the customer,” will be built. Four “stock answers” will be presented and explained. Mistake-proof and fail-safe techniques will be defined and examples given.

Workshops will be filled with Interactive case studies allowing trainees to be immersed in the experience and gain the confidence needed to tackle events in future at their company site. SS “R” Us has a comprehensive program structure where we help beyond the classroom. Our staff is always available to support for as long as needed until you have the solution you desire.

Root cause analysis is a topic as old, but it is not always done. And when it is done, it is not always done thoroughly, with depth and breadth. And even when a thorough analysis is done, it is not always followed-up effectively, such as with mistake-proofing or fail-safing. Conducting thorough investigations and ensuring follow-through, though often difficult, will improve product quality and save the company money in the long run. And to state the obvious, high quality and low cost are two descriptors often associated with world-class status.

Root Cause Analyses: Focus in Laboratories

When there is a laboratory problem, root cause analysis can find a solution. Assuming that the question, “Why?” is asked often enough.

Workshops for laboratory will be filled with Interactive case studies of example lab issues, allowing trainees to be immersed in the experience and gain the confidence needed to tackle events in future at their company site.
