Gain knowledge about the new tactics for root cause analysis and problem solving for developing an improved investigation system
Root cause analysis (RCA) [i.e. also called root cause failure analysis (RCFA)] enables systematic evaluation of potential failures in industrial systems to investigate the basic causes. If the basic causes (or also called root causes) are corrected or prevented, then it shall significantly be reduced the potential of reappearance them. This course focuses methodologies that would support investigating potential failures [e.g. failure mode effect analysis (FMEA) and failure mode effect and criticality analysis (FMECA)] so that when the contributing causes are eliminated, the failures would be prevented. In addition, it focuses on minimizing potential failures due to human factors, with special focus on minimizing the variability of investigations, assessments, evaluations and recommendations. It also focuses on some of benchmarking accident investigation & analysis techniques. The role of having competence in the application of different accident/incident investigation tools in assisting industrial organizations to learn; to prevent the recurrence of accidents; to evaluate the extent and location of management defects (root-causes), which contributed to the accident event shall be presented. The use of analytical accident investigation tools [e.g. use of analytic hierarchy process (AHP) based potential root cause prioritizations] to achieve continuous improvement (i.e. use of lean thinking) in health, safety, environment and quality (HSE&Q) performance will be discussed.
