What is Root cause analysis?

In science and engineering, root cause analysis (RCA) is a method of problem solving used for identifying the root causes of faults or problems. It is widely used in IT operations, telecommunications, industrial process control, accident analysis (e.g., in aviation, rail transport, or nuclear plants), medicine (for medical diagnosis), healthcare industry (e.g., for epidemiology), etc. RCA can be decomposed into four steps: * Identify and describe the problem clearly. * Establish a timeline from the normal situation up to the time the problem occurred. * Distinguish between the root cause and other causal factors (e.g., using event correlation). * Establish a causal graph between the root cause and the problem. RCA generally serves as input to a remediation process whereby corrective actions are taken to prevent the problem from reoccurring. The name of this process varies from one application domain to another.
