This two-day course teaches a structured approach to problem elimination. Unlike the commonly used Root Cause Analysis, IDCON’s training focuses on the steps required to eliminate the failure/problem rather than just analyzing it. IDCON analysis shows that up to 90% of all equipment problems can be eliminated by training and implementing basic problem-solving methods for the front-line. Learn how!
