It is often a common practice, either due to lack of time, lack of
adequate information or knowledge (or both) that equipment and system
failures are often investigated at a superficial level. As a result
maintainers and operators keep running unreliable plant, causing repeated
losses and become experts at fixing rather than preventing the problems.
RCA is a structured, team based, analytical approach that when used
correctly can alleviate chronic failure problems in a facility. In
this seminar, you will learn to apply several practical, systematic
methods for analysing performance problems to uncover root causes.
Your understanding of these tools will be reinforced by worked examples.
In addition, you will explore effective ways of gathering data for
root cause analyses, how to determine which problems should be analysed,
and how to design, develop, and implement a root cause analysis program
for your company. The effective use of RCA will improve the reliability
of equipment and overall plant availability and this seminar will
show you exactly how.
