Implement the root cause correction(s). 4). Key fact RCA directs the corrective action at the true root cause of the problem. As an observant reader, you will also note that these steps are very similar to our six-stage faultf nding process. 5 Summary I have introduced the six-stage process of diagnostics, not so that it should always be used as a checklist but to illustrate how important it is to follow a Key fact Six-stage process: 1.

Often with the best of intentions, a person new to diagnostics will not only fail to f nd the fault but also introduce more faults into the system in the process. I would suggest you learn your own strengths and weaknesses; you may be conf dent and good at dealing with mechanical system problems but less so when electronics is involved.
