Introduction

This RCA webinar will define a specific set of steps and associated tools that you can use to determine the primary cause of non-conformance in your laboratory. You will learn to determine what happened, why it happened and how to reduce the likelihood of that non-conformance happening again.

Why should you attend?

  • Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a popular and often-used technique that helps people answer the question of why the problem occurred in the first place.
  • When you have a non-conformance in the laboratory, how do you approach it?
  • Do you jump in and start treating the symptoms?
  • Do you stop to consider whether there’s actually a deeper problem that needs your attention?
  • If you only fix the symptoms – what you see on the surface – the problem will almost certainly happen again, which will lead you to fix it, again, and again, and again.
  • If, instead, you look deeper to figure out why the non-conformance is occurring, you can fix the underlying systems and processes that caused it. Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a popular and often-used technique that helps people answer the question of why the non-conformance occurred in the first place.
