    Root Cause Analysis (RCA)

    Root cause analysis of any failed product, component, or material is the investigative study of why or how it failed, resolve the problem, and prevent the recurrence of failure. Failures stemming from materials can be a result of faults in microstructure, material defects, thermo-mechanical issues, contamination due to foreign particles, engineering equipment or component issues, faulty devices, etc. RCA involves the characterization of the materials using a wide range of chemical or polymer analysis, mechanical, and electrical testing, and evaluation of their performance characteristics. RCA also looks into the processes and machinery involved as part of problem resolution.

    RCA is a great tool in isolating failures and is routinely used in quality control, resolving corrosion failure, material degradation issues, component defects, process issues, etc. RCA is essential in going beyond failure analysis and resolving the problem by analyzing the product, process, and people involved.

        Our material testing labs regularly provide root cause analysis (RCA) services for detailed investigative studies of failed products, components, and materials.  The experts at Infinita Lab are proficient in RCA and method development for component-specific studies.

        RCA can be extensive depending on the failure mechanism and subsequent investigation involved. The cost of testing depends on the type of testing, and product/component tested.

        Root cause analysis (RCA) is a multi-step process to systematically resolve issues that cause failure in products, components, or materials. In materials, testing involves a thorough investigation of a failure employing a suite of metrology techniques.

        RCA is a great tool in isolating failures and is routinely used in quality control, resolving corrosion failure, material degradation issues, component defects, process issues, etc.
