Industry Leaders Use TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis

Everyone knows that industry leaders use TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis. But why did they choose it? Here are four simple reasons…

Reason 1: Its Design

The first reason is the design and testing of the TapRooT® System…

  • TapRooT® RCA is a systematic investigation process based on over 30 years of in-depth human factors and equipment reliability research.
  • TapRooT® RCA is designed to keep investigators out of common investigation traps, including the blame game, confirmation bias, and jumping to conclusions.
  • TapRooT® RCA has been tested by government agencies and industry leaders around the world and continuously improved to produce reliable, repeatable, and explainable results.

Reason 2: Superior Features (It Works Better)

Second, TapRooT® System has superior features and is continuously improved…

  • TapRooT® RCA is not just a root cause analysis system. It is a complete investigation process that helps investigators collect the information they need to find root causes and develop effective corrective actions.
  • TapRooT® RCA includes an expert system that leads investigators beyond their current knowledge and makes them feel like they have a human factors expert sitting beside them when analyzing human errors.
  • The patented TapRooT® Software (cloud-based) makes the system more efficient and creates a database of investigation results that can be linked to other HSE or quality software via an API.
  • TapRooT® RCA has targeted training for those who will just investigate precursor (simple) incidents, equipment failures, or major accidents.
  • The TapRooT® System includes the copyrighted, proprietary Root Cause Tree® Diagram and Dictionary, and Corrective Action Helper® Guide developed by our expert staff. The Dictionary and Guide have been continuously improved for over 35 years in collaboration with our industry-leading TapRooT® Users.
  • Part of the continuous improvement is the TapRooT® Advisory Board – over 60 industry and governmental leaders from around the world who provide improvement ideas and critique planned improvements.
  • The TapRooT® System includes the Equifactor® Troubleshooting Tables designed by equipment expert Heinz Bloch.
  • TapRooT® RCA has extensive, readable documentation. The best-selling TapRooT® Books have sold well over 100,000 copies around the world.
