Dear Members,


What is your personal opinion about tagging causes to MAN while doing root cause analysis under 'No blame policy'. If I am going to follow a 'no blame policy', I should tag all the causes to either 'Machine', 'Material', 'Method', ........ but not 'Man'.


Hope not inducing confusions about traditional 4M Concept ????? :shutup:

Hello Zeeshan,

In a robust and joined up root cause analysis process MAN is very much a valid cause, even under a No Blame Policy.  However, it is another MAN who is responsible for solving the issue MANagement.
