Root Cause Analysis and Corrective Action Fundamentals and Advanced

Fundamentals

AVAILABLE VIA LIVE STREAM

The 1-Day Fundamentals of Root Cause Analysis & Corrective Action training course teaches key problem-solving techniques that will yield implementation of effective corrective actions.

The course provides the skills to look for underlying causes of problems that impact an organization’s operations and ultimately its profitability.

By performing exercises and group discussions, attendees will develop a hands-on understanding that will facilitate the uncovering of true root causes of problems and the implementation of meaningful corrective actions to help the organization improve.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the course, participants should have attained knowledge and understanding of the following concepts:

  • The steps to properly solve a problem, whether a manufacturing or service problem.
  • Detail overview of tools used for root cause analysis identification, including:
    • Brainstorming
    • The 5 Whys
    • Cause & Effect Analysis
  • The difference between Correction and Corrective Action
  • How to formulate immediate and long-term corrective actions, to address the root causes and prevent the original problem from reoccurring
  • Checking effectiveness of Corrective Actions

Advanced

AVAILABLE VIA LIVE STREAM

The 2-Day Advanced Root Cause Analysis and Corrective Action training course teaches key problem-solving techniques in order to uncover the underlying causes of problems that impact an organization’s operations and ultimately its profitability.

  • The first day of the course provides commonly used Root Cause Analysis tools necessary to determine and put in place meaningful corrective actions.
  • The second day of the course goes deeper into multiple node problems, as well as focusing on exercises that pertain to the organization and/or industry.

By performing exercises and group discussions, attendees will develop a hands-on understanding that will facilitate the uncovering of true root causes of problems and the implementation of meaningful corrective actions to help the organization improve.
