PROACT® Root Cause Analysis Templates

Formatted for Industry or Healthcare, RCA Templates are an “Add On” to the PROACT OnDemand® Cloud Subscription or Intranet Option.

Root Cause Analysis TemplatesFlexible Supplemental knowledge for RCA at your fingertips! Access your library of successfully completed RCAs by simply using keyword searches for similar events. After all hypotheses have been exhausted by the team, then the PROACT® Logic Tree Knowledge Management Templates® do what they were designed to do; uncover more possible causes that the team may have overlooked. Templates are comprised of events that have happened in numerous industrial and healthcare settings across all departments and include decades of researched real experiences. Each RCA analysis drills down to the REAL root causes of the undesirable events.

RCA templates provide a knowledge base for analysts to explore by keyword searching parts, failures, falls, injury incidents and more. The returned value is a fully completed RCA that will broaden the scope of possibilities that could have caused the undesirable outcome. Simply cut and paste to incorporate into your own RCA analysis or redefine your analysis by modifying the values returned.

Capitalize on past experience and leverage it on current analyses:

  • Industry specific:  Choose Industrial or Healthcarerca templates
  • Streamline and standardize Analyses across your facility.
  • Validate team hypotheses.
  • Identify overlooked organizational factors.
  • Drill down levels of detail to all of the root causes.
  • Search database using keywords and phrases.
  • Search titles and table of contents.
  • See RCA details show cause-and-effect relationships.

What Our Clients Say…

Annelise Zeemann

“All materials tell metallurgists what they suffered during a failure, and…as I am a good listener…it is easy for me to know why a material failed; but we know that the definition of a damaged mechanism is just part of the story…and without a good RCA the material answer is nothing.”

Annelise Zeemann, Materials Life

Peter Roberts

“This software is very helpful and aids in field analysis.  It is very simple to navigate.  This is the first time I have used this software and it amazes me with its flexibility and ease.”

Allan McNally

“The software is very easy to navigate, affordable, and has the capability of storing pictures, interviews, and whatever supporting data there is available to do the analysis. Overall, the software is a great management tool to track the completion of the analysis as well as the progress being made anytime an analysis is completed and solutions are implemented.”

Howard Penrose

“PROACTOnDemand has been a great tool for helping me manage my RCA’s!  The industry I was assisting thought the root causes were something completely different as everyone was only looking at the obvious.  Using the PROACT RCA process we were able to dig deeper and have resolved a rather significant issue in the energy sector that has plagued them for decades. “

Howard Penrose, Ph.D, CMRP

Tim Stovall

We have been using the Logic Tree Knowledge Management Templates to assist in our Root Cause Analyses for 6 months and have found the templates to be useful in sparking new ideas about possibilities that we may not have otherwise thought. Having a knowledge base of such RCA information allows us to easily search specific possibilities during the analysis itself, making our analyses more efficient and expediting the entire analytical process. Both new and experienced facilitators have found the templates useful in building their analyses. The templates are comprehensive, specific, logical and relevant to the type of equipment that we use in our operations of large petro-chemical facilities. Overall the templates are an excellent addition to the extensive knowledge of our RCA teams.

“I find the templates extremely useful, and a valuable tool for getting the project up and running. I no longer attempt to begin an analysis from scratch, but utilize the most applicable template to steer my thoughts into a useful direction.”

The PROACT methodology has given us a truly logical, data-driven approach for root cause determination.  PROACTOnDemand makes implementation of this methodology seamless across various user groups throughout our organization.  The ability to upload supporting documentation for team review is an especially useful feature.
