Find the cause for Structured Problem Analysis

Structured problem analysis is a process for investigating the cause of a problem. After defining the problem, you can use the following steps to find the actual confirmed cause.

Procedure

  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.

Result

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.
