Large companies typically have an individual or group fully or partially dedicated to root cause failure analysis (RCFA). Medium and smaller-sized companies generally don't have enough resources to focus on RCFA, and the maintenance or operations manager is placed in charge.

Get recommendations on which disciplines are required, depending on the type of asset and failure as a practical guide for maintenance and operation managers of small and medium companies.
