Refer any Audit findings, there are two major Contributing factors, which make the Industry to suffer. One of these is Data Integrity and the other major contributor is Inadequate Investigations, leading to inappropriate Root Cause identification.

Today we are well equipped with many tools, which can be used for Investigations and arrive a precise Root cause. For example, 5 WHY, FMEA & FTA, Pareto’s chart, Ishikawa or Fish Bone Analysis etc. Then, why do we fail? Is it not owing to self-created limitations to use these tools? The webinar explains with Real time case studies, Effective use of Root Cause Analysis Tools so as to rationally / logically arrive a possible precise Root cause. An identified Root cause will help us in designing an Effective CAPA.

Finally, Establishing the Effectiveness of CAPA is the final Objective of the entire Investigation to arrive a Proper CAPA. The webinar also covers the different aspects, which can be used to evaluate Effectiveness of CAPA.
