Root Cause, Reporting, and Reliability

Root Cause, Reporting, and Reliability

Root Cause, Reporting, and Reliability

5 WhysIt is no secret that improving reliability of assets can only be done with accurate reporting of condition and failure causes. It seems obvious to those trying to improve reliability that accurate reporting of root causes should be the primary goal of documenting any repair to an asset. But there are often disconnects between that organisational need for accurate data and the failure itself. Poor or confusing "problem/cause/remedy" codes make the data dirty. No written (or photographic!) details of the failure leave reliability engineers with dozens of root causes. No effective problem solving training for maintenance professionals leads to incorrect problem identification. Poor systems for recording 5 Whys or RCA methods applied. The list goes on and on!

Join your peers as we discuss ways to simplify the work documentation for maintenance workers while gathering more and better data for the reliability engineers and asset managers. We may discuss such points as:
  • RCA / problem solving methods
  • Barriers to root cause analysis
  • Improving problem / cause / remedy trees
  • Building a business case for systematic RCA training for staff
  • How to integrate modern tech (every phone has a camera these days!) with the reporting system for the highest benefit at the least cost.
