Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a method used in problem-solving to identify the underlying causes or fundamental factors contributing to faults, failures, or problems. It is a systematic approach that aims to go beyond addressing symptoms and focuses on understanding the root cause(s) of an issue.

RCA typically involves several steps to analyze and address the problem effectively. The general process includes the following stages:

Problem identification and description: Clearly define and describe the problem or issue at hand.

Timeline establishment: Establish a timeline from the normal situation until the problem occurred, identifying key events and factors along the way.

Differentiation of root cause: Distinguish between the root cause and other contributing factors, using techniques such as event correlation. The focus is on identifying the primary cause(s) that led to the problem.

Establishing a causal graph: Create a causal graph or relationship map between the root cause(s) and the problem, outlining the cause-and-effect connections.

The ultimate goal of RCA is to provide valuable insights and understanding of the underlying causes of a problem. This knowledge can then be used to develop appropriate corrective actions or solutions to prevent the problem from recurring in the future. The specific methods and techniques used in RCA can vary depending on the domain and context in which it is applied. Some common techniques include the Five Whys, Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), Fault Tree Analysis, Ishikawa Diagram (also known as a fishbone diagram), and Pareto Analysis.

Root cause analysis can be seen as part of proactive management, which focuses on preventing problems from occurring rather than just reacting to their symptoms. By addressing the underlying causes, organizations can implement long-term solutions and improve overall processes, quality, and performance.
