You Root Cause, I Root Cause... we All Root Cause
Bill Wilson, Analyst, Canada

So, what's special about the way you do Root Cause Analysis (RCA)?

1. What industry or domain is the setting for your RCA efforts?
2. For what kinds of issues do you perform RCAs?
3. What makes your industry/domain's RCAs different or interesting?
4. Is RCA well-integrated and supported in your industry/domain?

Root Cause in Nuclear Power
Bill Wilson, Analyst, Canada
I'll start this off...
1. Industry: commercial nuclear power generation.
2. RCA Issues: Anything and everything, depending on significance or risk of a problem. (Personnel safety, equipment problems, process deficiencies, organizational issues, project / work management failures, etc.)
3. RCA Diffs: We use a LOT of different tools, our reports can be quite long, and we put a lot of focus on recurrence prevention. Also, we have an abbreviated form of problem analysis called Apparent Cause Evaluation; it's used for problems with medium risk / significance.
4. RCA Supported: Yes, very much so. Our regulators and industry peers demand as much. We take it pretty seriously. (We have to.).
