Stratification Analysis in Root Cause Analysis

When:  May 21, 2024 from 06:30 PM to 08:00 PM (MT)
Associated with  Greater El Paso Section

Abstract: Solving problems is at the heart of Quality. Problems are the deviation from the expected or desired performance. After defining a problem and beginning the root cause analysis, there is a tool which strong problem solvers use, even if unconsciously, to narrow the investigation to the most likely causes and accelerate identification of the root cause. This tool has various names including stratification analysis and families of variation analysis. This talk will explain where it is most powerfully applied and how it works.
