Overview of the webinar

Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a popular and often-used technique that helps people answer the question of why the problem occurred in the first place. If you only fix the symptoms – what you see on the surface – the problem will almost certainly happen again, which will lead you to fix it, again, and again, and again. If, instead, you look deeper to figure out why the non-conformance is occurring, you can fix the underlying systems and processes that caused it. Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a popular and often-used technique that helps people answer the question of why the non-conformance occurred in the first place

Why should you attend?

When you have a non-conformance in the laboratory, how do you approach it?

  • Do you jump in and start treating the symptoms?
  • Do you stop to consider whether there's actually a deeper problem that needs your attention?

Learn to determine the Root Cause origin of a problem. You will learn a specific set of steps, with associated tools, to find the primary cause of the problem, so that you can:

  •  Determine what happened
  • Determine why it happened
  • Figure out what to do to reduce the likelihood that it will happen again
