Introduction to failure root cause analysis

Root cause analysis (RCA) is one of many quality improvement approaches used to identify, understand and resolve root causes of problems, incidents or accidents. It is an objective, thorough and disciplined methodology employed to determine the most probable underlying causes of problems and undesired events within an organisation with the aim of formulating and agreeing corrective actions to at least mitigate if not eliminate those causes and so produce significant long term performance improvement.

PART 1: General principles of root cause analysis, implementation and identification of the necessary parameter registration.
PART 2: Example exercises of root cause analyses in common damage situations in power plants that must be solved interactively.

Asset managers, quality assurance managers, plant operation engineers, maintenance engineers.

Guido Van de Vyvere began his career as a young engineer in the power generation domain. This allowed him to get a broad experience in the field working on different types of equipment, both in nuclear and in conventional power plants. Since 2001 he has focused on the maintenance of aeroderivative gas turbines in an international context. Today, he uses this broad experience on dedicated projects (for example, wind energy systems) and on root cause failure analysis.
