Root Cause Analysis

Identify real root cause of failure and actions to prevent recurrence

Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a process that identifies the events responsible for machine failures and uses that information to define right actions to prevent future failures. The process investigates typically three basic types of failure causes:
  • Physical or technical
  • Human errors of omission or commission
  • Organizational systems, operating procedures and decision-making

Following the analysis, SKF delivers a report on failure causes and effects, plus a comprehensive plan of actions to prevent recurrence.

RCA is a solid part of the Proactive Reliability Maintenance and Integrated Maintenance Solutions contracts and the driver for continuous improvement.
