Root Cause Analysis is a technique to explore the cause-and-effect relationships underlying a particular problem. Root Cause Analysis templates under this category (or RCA templates) can help to present a Root Cause Analysis to an audience. This category has slides and PowerPoint templates including Five whys (or 5 whys root cause analysis template), Fishbone diagrams for RCA, decision trees and other presentation templates that can be used to conduct a root cause analysis or to present the results of a RCA.
Root cause analysis (RCA) is a process for identifying underlying causes of a problem, event or a situation. It provides a framework to understand the problems and facilitate finding a solution for the problem.
The 5 Whys of a Root Cause Analysis is a technique used to analyze a problem by asking the question “Why” five times. This technique is part of the DMAIC Six Sigma methodology.
The basic components of a Root Cause Analysis corresponds to answer the following questions of a given problem or situation.
First, you can Identify Possible Causal factors of the problem or situation you are analyzing. Here, the project team collects data to understand what is the current situation, set the vision and have the problem being identified. Then, the team identifies the primary sources of the health problem, the root cause.
