PROACT Failure Scene Investigation Consulting Benefits:

  • Best results are attained when the analyses are facilitated by RCI consultants because they are unbiased, provide “fresh eyes” to look into the problems and have experience leading cross-functional teams. Using RCI consultants offers third party objectivity when unions, regulatory agencies and/or equipment manufacturers are involved in the investigation.
  • RCI consultants are experts in the field of Root Cause Analysis with proven track records that have resulted in millions of dollars in savings for their clients worldwide for over 30 years.
  • RCI consultants are educators. This is a highly effective reinforcement to the PROACT® RCA investigative process. RCA team members are able to see the disciplined approach carried out clearly and effectively from start to finish. Enthusiasm and buy-in from management results when problems are solved after a successful investigation.

reliability clientsPROACT® Root Cause Analysis Mentoring:
Oftentimes (more often than not) when new lead investigators are trained, they are a little uncomfortable leading their first RCA. This is especially true if the first RCA is a high visibility event. RCI understands this hesitancy and it is quite normal. For this reason, our trained investigators can work with their student analyst under such conditions, in order to give them some more self-confidence and ensure they are on the right path. It is up to the client investigator as to how much help they will need, and when they will need it. Whether it requires our investigators/mentors to be on-site or just assist online via WebEx, RCI just wants the analysts’ to be successful. In these situations, our investigators will be in the ‘background’ mentoring their students, who are assuming the role of Lead Investigator with their own teams.
