Root Cause Analysis Course


There will always be problems in the working environment, no matter which area, level or industry type. We all know that it is important to contain problems as soon as they occur or are discovered.

Root Cause Analysis with corrective action is about getting to the true source of a problem and then correcting it for good. Why should you allow time and money being wasted over and over?

Your managers need to measure and solve the problems for good.  With this workshop your employees will learn how to do this without spending weeks away from work in a classroom. They will be equipped to start working with others to eliminate reoccurring problems for good. Practical tools are provided on soft copy CD.

It examines all wastes of time and money.

These include, with some brief examples, but not limited to:
