It includes physical, human and organizational clauses. First one must identify the problem, and then you must collect data then identify possible causes. From these causes you can find out the root cause of the problem. Then depending on the cause apply feasible solution for the same. The most important steps include finding out the negative events that are occurring. Certain tools like FMEA, 5 Whys, Cause and Effect Diagrams and Kaizen to do root cause analysis. Root cause analysis is an important part of Six Sigma methodology. In the analyse phase of Six Sigma, root cause analysis is done using tools and techniques.
