The Failure and Root Cause Analysis is a method that allows the maintenance administrator to know which equipment fails the most, the most recurrent type of failure and the root causes of said failures, helping him to take corrective actions to attack the problems based on the most recurrent or those with the greatest impact.
In the Information Analysis module, the PM groups and organizes the historical information in such a way that it will be easy to identify the most recurrent failures and their root cause, but for this it is necessary that when registering a failure or indicating that the failure has been attended, capture the information regarding the type of equipment and type of failure.
Auxiliary catalog of equipment types and faults
The auxiliary Failure Type catalog is organized into groups. Each group corresponds to a different Type of Team.
It should be mentioned that it is not necessary to have a catalog of previous failure types. Gradually, as the faults appear, the auxiliary catalog of fault types can be formed
If at the time we register the failure we do not have information regarding the type of failure, the root cause, damage caused, etc., we can supplement the information at the time of reporting that the work has already been carried out (Update the OT).
Auxiliary catalog of causes of failure
On the other hand, we also have an auxiliary catalog of failure causes. This catalog is general for all types of failures. In addition to recording the type of failure, the cause of the failure selected from the following catalog must be indicated.
