PROACT® RCA Trending Manager

Included in the PROACT® Enterprise Suite and Desktop Platforms.

How well is your RCA effort performing? Many cannot answer this question for various reasons. Some of these reasons are related to the variability in their root cause analysis approach, variability in the definition of success for their RCA effort and inability to correlate results from completed RCAs.

Wouldn’t it be helpful to know that you could see a 25% increase  in training related causes in our RCAs over the past year?

The PROACT Trending Manager was designed to allow analysts like you the ability to conduct common cause analyses across the PROACT database. So now you can seek out trends related to your RCA performance.

Easy to Define Trending Criteria:

  • Answer Wizard’s Questions
  • Select “View Trending Results”
  • View concise & professional reports
  • View details, see bar & line graphs
  • Drill down to as much detail on a given point as you’d like
  • Directly launch into a specific analysis if desired

Benefits of Trending your Root Cause Analyses:

  • The PROACT Trending Manager allows you to easily report to management the trends you are seeing as a result of your RCA implementations. Often times when using form-based or paper-based systems it is only possible to view one analysis at a time. When using the PROACT Trending Manager you are able to define, create and report trends across your RCA database. Proving such trends allows you to identify proactive opportunities for future RCAs as well as prove the ones you have completed are having a positive impact on your companies bottom-line.

Trending as a Systematic Approach:

  • The PROACT Trending Manager® is an integral part of the PROACT RCA System. It allows us to view our RCA efforts as a system and not just as individual tasks. Trending helps us to provide justification of the RCA effort to assist with getting more funding and resources to expand our successful efforts.

What Our Clients Say…

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’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.”

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.

Trinidad Cement Limited

Allan McNally

“The software is very easy to navigate, affordable, and has the capability of storing pictures, interviews, and whatever supporting data there is available to do the analysis. Overall, the software is a great management tool to track the completion of the analysis as well as the progress being made anytime an analysis is completed and solutions are implemented.”

Howard Penrose

“PROACTOnDemand has been a great tool for helping me manage my RCA’s!  The industry I was assisting thought the root causes were something completely different as everyone was only looking at the obvious.  Using the PROACT RCA process we were able to dig deeper and have resolved a rather significant issue in the energy sector that has plagued them for decades. “

Howard Penrose, Ph.D, CMRP

Tim Stovall

We have been using the Logic Tree Knowledge Management Templates to assist in our Root Cause Analyses for 6 months and have found the templates to be useful in sparking new ideas about possibilities that we may not have otherwise thought. Having a knowledge base of such RCA information allows us to easily search specific possibilities during the analysis itself, making our analyses more efficient and expediting the entire analytical process. Both new and experienced facilitators have found the templates useful in building their analyses. The templates are comprehensive, specific, logical and relevant to the type of equipment that we use in our operations of large petro-chemical facilities. Overall the templates are an excellent addition to the extensive knowledge of our RCA teams.

“I find the templates extremely useful, and a valuable tool for getting the project up and running. I no longer attempt to begin an analysis from scratch, but utilize the most applicable template to steer my thoughts into a useful direction.”

We use We use the PROACT System at MotorDoc LLC for our forensic investigations of electrical system and electric motor failures. I’ve used it to solve management issues, long-term machine conditions and more for well over a decade. We highly recommend the system and process – it works! I’ve staked my reputation on it many times with absolute confidence.

I’ve long known what an RCA is supposed to do, but not how to get there. Using the PROACT software helped to easily apply the RCA discipline to produce analyses that are robust and meaningful. In fact, PROACT helped uncover surprising causes buried in events that I thought I knew everything about!
