How Work Process & RCA Connect Into a Complete Approach Online Short Course

August 6 at 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM CDT

Work processes within your organization should be closely coupled with your problem-solving programs. A problem should be viewed as a signal that indicates where process improvements are needed. This alignment allows leadership and frontline personnel to work together to address safety incidents, operational problems, equipment failures and procedural deficiencies. Building a Cause Map™ diagram reveals the causes that contributed to the problem—revealing effective solutions and identifying specific work processes that need to be changed. From there, process maps clarify work processes that, ultimately, lead to improved human performance. This short course explains how organizations can improve the problem-solving process and make specific, actionable work process improvements.

FMEA 101 Online Short Course – Aug 7

August 7 at 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM CDT

Root cause analysis (RCA) is typically used for investigating why a problem did occur, so specific solutions can be implemented to prevent it from occurring again. Failure modes effect analysis (FMEA) is used to understand how a problem could happen in the future in an effort to identify what actions should be taken to prevent it. RCA is reactive, and FMEA is proactive. Connecting the two approaches can improve how your organization analyzes, documents, communicates and prevents problems.
