Root Cause Analysis

Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is a problem solving method used to identify incidents or the root cause of certain issues. To be considered as a root cause factor, it should meet the requirement that if it were to be removed from the problem-fault, the final undesirable event would not have happened; whereas a causal factor affects the outcome of an event, but is not the root cause. Though removing a causal factor can benefit an outcome, it would not prevent its recurrence with certainty.

This module allows users to manage Severity and Likelihood according to a Risk Matrix.
