Course Data Sheet
Course Duration: 1 Day
Audience: This course is recommended for persons who will be expected to identify opportunities that can be realized upon completion of Root Cause Analysis (RCA) Investigations. This course covers the managerial tools that provide the focus necessary to find and take advantage of these uncovered opportunities. This course also will benefit those who are responsible for implementing recommendations and determining how the available resources can be best utilized.
Course Description: This course provides an in-depth understanding of RCI’s Opportunity Analysis (OA) approach to identifying the most significant opportunities in any system. The course is designed to provide a vehicle to comb existing weak operating systems in order to find the Significant Few (the 20% of the failure modes causing 80% of the system losses) opportunities for improvement. A detailed comprehension of how to perform OA on the weak systems will be applied so the maximum bottom-line results can be achieved. The attendees will learn how to physically perform an OA, as well as, how to develop a report that details the OA results, and how to present their findings to management for review and action.
The course will also cover decision-by-pairs which is a technique used to prioritize a list of items in their order of importance to the decision-makers. The technique measures each item with all the other items to provide a structured model for determining their order of importance in the overall scope of the decision making process.
The course also covers how to prioritize using a Priority Matrix. This prioritization tool consists of a 3 X 3 matrix in which items are positioned for “ease of solution” on an “X” axis and impact on a “Y” axis by assigning numbers 1, 3, or 5 to each of the parameters depending on severity. Items to be prioritized are then numbered and these numbers slotted into the matrix to determine ease of solution and impact upon resolution.
