Root Cause Analysis (RCA)
Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a technique used to identify the underlying cause of a problem or issue. It is a systematic process of analyzing the symptoms of a problem to determine its root cause. RCA is used in maintenance operations and management to identify the source of a problem and develop a plan to address it. The goal of RCA is to identify the root cause of a problem and develop a solution that will prevent it from occurring again. RCA involves gathering data, analyzing the data, and developing a plan of action to address the root cause. It is an important tool for maintenance operations and management, as it helps to identify and address problems before they become more serious. RCA can also be used to identify potential areas of improvement and develop strategies to improve maintenance operations and management.
