Root Cause Analysis

The study identifies all root causes of failure and act accordingly allowing prevent recurrence in the future


This study includes

1.- Development of cause-effect tree
2.- Recompilation and revision of historical and field data.
3.- Definition of fractographic and metalographic characteristics of the failures.
4.- Experimental Essays for the characterization of the materials and the propagation of the initiative defect (mechanical, chemical, via MEB and via EDS characterizations).
5.- Mechaical Modeling of the initial damage and final rupture formation.
6.- Critical Engineering Analysis and root cause definition.
In an iteration process, each one of the alternatives are verified and eliminated, through investigations and experimental data. It is concluded with a description of the failure causes, the events, circumstances and exceeded barriers that actually influenced in its occurrence are made explicit.
7.- Specific meetings for each Project are made in the Company’s main office or plant visits of GIE’s specialists are made for the results presentations, if convenient.
