Root cause analysis (RCA) benefits an organization in multiple ways.
The big thing is that root cause analysis helps organizations in determining and identifying defects and main causes of defects. By identifying root cause, organizations can find permanent solutions so that a defects re-occurrence can be reduced or eliminated.
Looking at the bigger picture, RCA in general helps companies develop a logical approach to solving problems. After identifying the main cause of a defect, what normally follows is trying to figure out and find out major problem-solving approaches with help of information that is already present.
This often requires identifying what all changes are necessary for software quality improvement once a defect is determined via RCA.
Additionally, root cause analysis also helps in establishing repeatable and appropriate step-by-step processes in which one process might confirm the result of another process.
It should also be mentioned that root cause analysis is a multi-task tool. It can be used to analyze different activities of an organization, such as:
- Analyze Quality Control
- Analyzing failure in maintenance
- Analyze process of system
- Analyze different system-based processes
- Analyze risk and change management
