    Tying Risk/Investigations/RCA Together

    More than 50% of the process industry is still operating with paper or file-based maintenance systems and people dependent processes for Root Cause Analysis (RCA). In today's environment, innovation is no longer an option. To stay relevant with performance and ride out the retiring workforce, now is the time to invest in RCA capabilities and data.
    On this week’s episode, Larry chats with Jaclyn Arnold, VP of Owner Operator at Hexagon PPM, to discuss the various maturities that exist when it comes to understanding and implementing RCA and where to start in improving the maturity curve. Jaclyn shares how digital leaders are using technology and asset data to advance their requirements, capabilities, and processes around RCA and significantly improve availability. But with a lot of technology available, in order to be successful you have to consider the state of your data, people, and processes first and technology second.
