Join US for the next Cause Mapping Root Cause Analysis Public Workshop ONLINE on October 26-28!
How long has it been since your last training with ThinkReliability? In this online short course, you’ll revisit the Cause Mapping method and further hone your problem-solving skills. We will review Cause Mapping concepts and conventions, the basics of cause and effect thinking, cause-and-effect fundamental relationships and common errors by facilitators. The session will culminate into a case study that brings all the pieces together.
Who should attend?
The focus of this course is to refamiliarize attendees with the Cause Mapping method and provide an opportunity for attendees to ask method application questions. Prior Cause Mapping workshop attendance is recommended.
The Cause Mapping Root Cause Analysis for Facilitators + Documentation Public Workshop provides valuable problem-solving skills that you can immediately apply within your organization.Find out more »
On the morning of January 28, 1986, during the tenth flight of Space Shuttle Challenger, NASA’s first space shuttle disaster. A mere 73 seconds after liftoff, the space shuttle broke apart over the Atlantic Ocean, taking the lives of all seven crew members. In this webinar, we'll use this catastrophic event as a case study for understanding how a cause-and-effect based root cause analysis can be applied to complex, catastrophic incidents.Find out more »
The template, which we provide for free, is a workbook in Microsoft Excel created specifically to allow users to document, analyze and present their root cause analysis within one file. Each worksheet has a specific purpose within the investigation and allows you to document the different parts of a complete incident investigation. This free webinar will explain the purpose of each of the worksheets included in the file, as well as offer a few helpful tips and tricks to complete your investigation.Find out more »
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.
In this online short course, you’ll learn:
The importance of cause-and-effect thinking for understanding and preventing incidents.The 10 steps of conducting a conventional FMEA.How a system breaks out into its parts.How RCA and FMEA connect into a cumulative Cause Map™ diagram—a tool that captures the different failure modes over the life of a system.
