Root Cause Analysis

Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a process that identifies the events responsible for machine failures and uses that information to help prevent future failures.

After investigating three basic types of failure causes – physical or technical, human errors of omission or commission, and those related to an organization’s systems, operating procedures and decision making – SKF delivers a report on failure causes and effects, plus a comprehensive plan of corrective actions to prevent recurrence.
