Root Cause Failure Analysis
The Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA) short course provides a comprehensive training experience in the key concepts and proven methods related to the identification and elimination of root failure causes occurring in complex systems, subsystems, and components.
The course emphasizes the development and implementation of a failure analysis methodology for use throughout the organization. Participants will be armed with procedures and technologies for working through various types of systems failures through the use of Ishikawa diagrams, mind-mapping, and fault tree analysis for identifying potential failure causes. They will learn how to define potential root failure causes and develop evaluation plans by using hardware analysis, statistical analysis, experiment design, technical data package evaluation and other pertinent tools. The course presents corrective action alternatives and a framework for selecting optimal intermediate and longer-term corrective actions.
This intensive training program utilizes real-life case studies to help participants effectively apply the new toolkit to their jobs. At the end of the course, they will know how to identify dominant failure modes through quantity and cost-based Pareto analyses, identify the root causes of systems failures, select and implement effective corrective actions and work as an inter-organizational, multi-disciplinary failure analysis team.
