Reliability, Safety, Human Performance, Maintenance, and Healthcare. How RCA Can Help!

Basic Failure Analysis Training

RCA On Chronic Failures

How to prevent failure from reoccurring – What do you do with broken parts after a failure occurs? When a failure happens on a job site work crews are pressured by management to clean up the area and get back online. So oftentimes broken parts and failure data are destroyed, altered or discarded. Don’t discard these parts – SAVE them for Root Cause Analysis investigations that may prove to be valuable information.

Learning what data is important to collect and how positional data can provide valuable information in restoring the order of events is paramount to identifying why the failure happened. Reliability Center Inc. offers several courses, software, tools and resources to assist the investigator in recovering what went wrong, how to investigate a failure and apply it to the Root Cause Analysis investigation for reporting PLUS how to prevent failure from reoccurring.

Wonderful system! Presentation was done in a very consistent manner giving a good overview of system and capabilities. The real case scenario exercise was a good way to bring it all together.

“ I’ve used the PROACT method for RCA many times and it has always surfaced issues with leadership decisions and omissions related to guidance (policies, processes and procedures) and resources.”

Sanya Mathura

“Mark, It was an absolute pleasure to see you deliver the BFA course yesterday.

The manner in which you made the topics come to life with your experiences and knowledge was great to behold. You continuously connected with the audience and had them engaged for the entire day! (Which is a bit tough to do especially after lunch). Your wealth of experience and knowledge throughout the day really helped in bringing the participants to the understanding of the PROACT methodology and the concepts that were covered in the BFA. “

I definitely learned new ways / improved ways to think while troubleshooting on the job. It inspired me to break away from staying in the box mindset.

The PROACT® Logic Tree, is one of the best methods we use. We are proud that all SABIC sites and corporates are unified in terms of analyzing the major incidents by using PROACT® Logic Tree methodology since our aim and target is always to reach to the latent root cause(s) that failed to protect our assets from any false human interaction.

“I rank your organization as the best in the world at what they do and very often advise my clients to train on your software and methods. In 33 years I have come across none better. But as good as the tool is, it is not the only tool needed to have a well-balanced toolbox.”

Sam McNair Director Of Operations at Lagniappe Professional Services LLC

Annelise Zeemann

“All materials tell metallurgists what they suffered during a failure, and…as I am a good listener…it is easy for me to know why a material failed; but we know that the definition of a damaged mechanism is just part of the story…and without a good RCA the material answer is nothing.”

Annelise Zeemann, Materials Life
