    • QUOTE: ... Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a method that identifies and isolates the root cause of problems. Root causes are those factors that can be eliminated to prevent an adverse event from happening.

      Root Cause Analysis (RCA) assumes that it’s more efficient to prevent and solve underlying problems than treating symptoms or putting out fires. A variety of techniques and principles can be used to determine the root cause of an event or trend. Root Cause Analysis (RCA) can identify the root causes of an event or trend, and not just cause and effectIt's the change in the average value of the output caused by....

      Root cause analysis (RCA) is crucial to problem-solving. Preventing an event from happening is better than reacting to its harmful consequences. RCA is a permanent solution that eliminates the cause of the defectA defect is a physical, functional, or aesthetic attrib....

    • Root cause analysis (RCA) is a method of problem solving used for identifying the root causes of faults or problems. A factor is considered a root cause if removal thereof from the problem-fault-sequence prevents the final undesirable event from recurring; whereas a causal factor is one that affects an event's outcome, but is not a root cause. ...
