Common reasons why corrective failures persist and root cause analyses fail if they are performed at all are:
At Asset Integrity Group, we fully advocate and subscribe to the Apollo Root Cause Analysis theorems, but we also demand that our Reliability Engineers are also fully experienced Reliability Engineering practitioners, who possess sound engineering acumen from an academia base, but also must have a solid foundation of engineering knowledge of the asset’s equipment. Perhaps more significantly our Reliability Engineers have a naturally investigative, lateral thinking mind set, who are very much at home operating “outside of the box”, essential for cold case forensic investigations.
Asset Integrity Group’s Reliability Engineers have extensive incident investigation experience, where we use the Failure Reporting Analysis and Corrective Action Systems, (FRACAS), methodology for root cause analysis, where Six Sigma’s Define, Measure, Analyse, Implement and Control (DMAIC), philosophy is used to achieving true root cause, and so defining the multiple preventions of reoccurrence that need to be implemented and controlled to be truly effective.
