SKF Root Cause Analysis (RCA)
Root Cause Analysis is a structured investigation that aims to identify the true cause of a problem and the actions necessary to eliminate it. In this context, SKF RCA process and methodology is used either to solve recurring driveline failures to prevent their effects, or to identify areas to address if a gearbox spec increase is needed.
SKF RCA process and methodology includes:
- Identifying a problem
- Containing and analyzing the problem
- Defining the root cause(s)
- Defining and implementing the actions required to eliminate the root cause(s)
- Validating that the corrective action prevented recurrence of the problem
