Root Cause Analysis
Root Cause Analysis
Companies worldwide are continuously looking for ways to prevent repeat problems from occurring. They struggle to find the real cause, the “root cause”, of the problem and only treat the symptom. When this happens, eventually the problem will rear its ugly head again. This negatively impacts productivity, product quality, scrap rates and inevitably their brand equity. The cost of poor quality often goes unnoticed, being disguised in higher warranty costs and loss of sales. A consistently high level of productivity and quality are essential for success in any business. Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is an effective tool for preventing repeat failures or quality issues. A properly planned, structured and implemented RCA system can be an effective tool for driving down to the root of the problem and eliminating it once and for all. The planning requires experts knowledgeable in the subject and valuable time and resources. That is where Modern Solutions Consulting services can be of value.
