ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS (RCA)

ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS (RCA)

Root cause analysis (RCA) is one of many quality improvement approaches used to identify, understand and resolve any root causes of problems or incidents.  It is basically a problem solving technique.

RCA is a relatively new methodology that is continually evolving. Like most Quality Improvement approaches it is not magic; “there is no silver bullet”. It is the application in a different way of a series of well known, common sense techniques which used in a different combination can produce a systematic, quantified and documented approach to the identification, understanding and resolution of underlying causes of under achieved quality in organizations.
