Systemic Root Cause Analysis (SRCA) and Maintenance Planning

Systemic Root Cause Analysis (SRCA) And Maintenance Planning

Maximizing Asset Reliability and Availability


This course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and tools necessary to maximize asset reliability and availability through Systemic Root Cause Analysis (SRCA) and Maintenance Planning. SRCA is an approach to problem-solving that aims to identify the underlying causes of equipment failures, rather than simply treating the symptoms. By applying this approach, organizations can develop effective solutions that improve asset reliability and availability, reduce maintenance costs and downtime, and increase safety and environmental compliance.

Course Objectives

  • Understand the principles and concepts of Systemic Root Cause Analysis (SRCA)
  • Apply SRCA to identify the root causes of equipment failures
  • Develop effective solutions to improve asset reliability and availability
  • Understand the principles and concepts of Maintenance Planning
  • Develop and implement a maintenance plan based on SRCA findings
  • Measure and improve the effectiveness of the maintenance plan


  • Gain a deep understanding of Systemic Root Cause Analysis (SRCA) and its application to asset reliability and availability
  • Learn how to identify and analyze equipment failures and their root causes
  • Develop skills to create effective solutions to improve asset reliability and availability
  • Enhance your ability to optimize maintenance activities and reduce downtime and maintenance costs
  • Connect with other professionals and experts in the field of maintenance planning and reliability engineering
