5 whys are a fairly easy method to do RCA. BUT, you really have to have some education/experience in how to use it.
It's not as simple as asking "why". If you are new to the concept. or members of your team are new to the concept, I would highly recommend some training in basic RCA techniques.
 

If you are not focused on the answer to "why", you spend a lot of needless time answering the question.

i did google and looks like this might be useful for the report on

5 Whys (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) ; Identify / Determine which factors are root causes and not just symptoms.
