Why Parts Fail and How RCA Can Help!

Basic Failure AnalysisWhat 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.

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.

Enhance Your Work Skills With PROACT Training

Lead Investigator Certification Program Series
The Lead Investigator Program provides students with a solid foundation in mechanical reliability (fractology), and an in-depth understanding about the conditions that increase the risk of human error in the workplace. These integral skills will then be utilized within the PROACT® Root Cause Analysis framework and software to ensure that investigations are efficient, effective and successful.

BFA – Basic Failure Analysis + Train The Trainer
The Basic Failure Analysis Workshop is intended to provide facility personnel the requisite skills and knowledge to eliminate the problems and chronic failures that they are experiencing everyday on the job. Students are provided instruction on a unique 4-step process that guides them through the technique of solving chronic problems down to their root cause(s) using real world examples. In addition, BFA provides the guidelines for the support mechanisms necessary to implement countermeasures to identified root causes.
