Find the cause for Structured Problem Analysis

Structured problem analysis is a process for investigating the cause of a problem.

About this task

After defining the problem, you should be able to find the actual confirmed cause by:


  1. Listing all possible causes.
  2. Evaluating each possible cause to find the most probable causes.
  3. Testing the most probable causes.
  4. Confirming the cause.


You may identify several causes as most probable and may confirm several causes by the end of the process.

This concludes the structured problem analysis process. The cause of the problem has been identified, tested, and confirmed.

The overall problem management process can continue.
