Fundamental to any continuous improvement program is the ability to determine the root cause of an effect. Root cause is the fundamental, underlying reason for a problem.  The approach should be “Don’t put a bandage on a problem; fix the issue permanently”.

Root cause analysis involves - deploying methodologies to understand the root cause(s) of a problem and verify the same. 8D and A3 problem-solving are universally deployed approaches that are structured to identify and verify the root cause in a scientific manner.

This course will enable participants to understand root cause analysis as a procedure for ascertaining and analyzing the causes of problems in an effort to determine what can be done to solve or prevent them occurring again. RCA potentially leads to saving of time, money, and resources.

Keeping this in view, IMTMA is organizing an Online program on “Certified Champion in Root Cause Analysis”. This course is designed to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of how to analyze a system to identify the root causes of problems thro “Learning By Doing” methodology.

Key Takeaways

At the end of this program, the participants shall be able to:

  • Enhance problem-solving effectiveness by providing a model for in-depth analysis of problem situations.
  • Apply the concept of Y=f(x).
  • Know Tool kit required to complete an A3/8D problem solving report.
  • Apply A3/8D problem-solving on the shop floor.
  • Propagate systematic way of problem solving
  • You will have the necessary skills required to become an adept A3/8D practitioner, prepared to lead and facilitate effective problem-solving activities and teams.
