How to Apply Cause and Effect Analysis in a Processing Plant?

I work in a process plant. I'm always facing breakdowns of machinery or even small defects. People including myself tend to replace immediately the defective part, and restore the machine in service. I know this is not as good as analyzing and finding the root cause. Can anybody advice a procedure with some simple steps to take suitable in this case? Thanks for your help. (...) Read more?

Processing Plant Cause and Effect - Basic Questions
Craig Power, United Kingdom, Member
Hi, I know the following answer doesn't give you a procedure, but as a capital equipment buyer I suggest the following basic areas to review:
- Is the equipment specified for the required outputs or has the requirement changed over time?
- Are the production materials used consistent to a specification that you know the machine can utilise / give required outputs from?
- Are the production operators / or maintenance personnel making changes from day to day or shift to shift which effect the equipment performance? There should be a base setting that works. Often through time small 'tweaks' become big issues.
- Is a basic preventative maintenance routine followed and are breakdown data present and evaluated?
- Can the equipment supplier be of help in this area? Many users often (post purchase) neglect the expertise the machinery suppliers bring to the table - many suppliers have seen most of the equipment (or process) problems before. What seem complex issues in your organisation may be quite common to the supplier.
