Lean Root Cause Analysis -

Going Beyond Symptoms

 
Professional Development Meeting

October 14, 2014

 

APICS Tampa Bay invites local supply chain, operations management, transportation and logistics professionals to our Professional Development Meeting on October 14, 2014 from 5:30 to 8:00 PM at the DoubleTree Hotel, 4500 W. Cypress Street, Tampa, FL 33607.  

 

Our speaker is Mr. Chet Kagel, Business Process Consultant with the HPK Group, LLC specializing in process improvement and strategic planning consulting.  He will be speaking on the topic of Lean Root Cause Analysis - Going Beyond Symptoms. 

 

Does your organization experience problems that have been “solved” multiple times but they continue to reoccur?  Each time we implement a solution, the expectation is that the problem is totally solved.  Many times the solution that is used has been tried before – so why do expect it to work this time?

 

Root Cause Analysis (RCA) enables us to break this non-productive loop.  Root Cause Analysis is not one specific technique but encompasses a group of problem solving methods.  During this meeting we’ll discuss some common methods such as the Fishbone diagram, Logic diagrams, Control Barrier Analysis, and Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA).  In addition, we’ll introduce techniques such as P-M Analysis and Systems Analysis which can be used with more difficult and fleeting problems.  

 

We’re looking forward to having an interactive meeting, so bring some examples of reoccurring problems that you have experienced and we’ll discuss possible Root Cause Analysis (RCA) tools to solve them.
