Assignment: Root Cause Analysis
- Root Cause Analysis
Now that you have completed a Gemba Walk and have gathered information about the organization and identified opportunities to eliminate inefficiencies, reduce waste, improve a product, or streamline a process, it is time to take a closer look at these problems and get to the root cause of why they are happening.
For more information about how to use 5 Whys or a Fishbone diagram to conduct a root cause analysis, check out the following links:
