- Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation
Then find your goals…
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 703 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Root cause analysis improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 703 standard requirements:
- It is important to brainstorm before identifying cause categories otherwise you can constrain the range of ideas. However, if ideas are slow in coming do you use questions such as, what about?
- Are there any circumstances/cases for which dissolution and/or disintegration testing may no longer be needed/provide any additional values to product Quality Assurance at release?
- Can any policies, procedures or protocols (or the lack of them) affect an incident. Are policies, procedures or protocols followed, out of date, ambiguous, unavailable?
- If the nonconformance was traced to a part, what were the results of the failure analysis/DPA (e.g., did destructive physical analysis DPA confirm the failure)?
- Managers should assess what is essential to securing the health and safety of the staff and service users today. What cannot be left until another day?
- Can anything be done to prevent root cause investigations from reaching incorrect or incomplete conclusions and/or make investigations more effective?
- Are problems addressed by your mission and root causes, do you ask: what keeps such problems from being solved in a meaningful and permanent way?
- The goal is to develop improvements that can be implemented and tested. Is the focus on how could one prevent this problem from happening again?
- Eliminate-can you eliminate the problem, for example stopping a high risk procedure altogether or not using a hazardous piece of equipment?
- Training/knowledge/information/Supervision-can you provide additional training or supervision to staff to minimise or eliminate problems?
Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:
