TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Software

TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Software has come a long way since the 1990s MacFlow flowcharting software and the TapRooT™ Events & Causal Factors Charting Template. (Learn more about the history of TapRooT® Software.) However, the fact that incident investigators used our software back in the 90s proves that we were one of the first (if not the first) to develop incident investigation software.

We continuously improve our root cause analysis software to keep up with the latest in TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis, as well as the latest changes in software implementation. We now have industry-leading, cloud-based software that can help you perform outstanding root cause analysis of simple incidents, precursor (near-miss) incidents, or complex accidents.

How Incident Investigators Use TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Software

TapRooT® Investigators use our software to perform their incident investigations because they enjoy the ease of building a SnapCharT® Diagram in the software and identifying Causal Factors using the built-in Causal Factor Worksheets. They can quickly take those Causal Factors through the Root Cause Tree® Diagram by opening the Root Cause Tree® Dictionary with a simple click to answer “yes/no” questions. The Corrective Action Helper® Guide is also built into the software giving them access to outside-of-the-box ideas for corrective actions. Finally, with a few more clicks, an entire report can be created to present to management.

But Wait . . . There’s More
