dc.descriptionThis paper provides a literary review on implementing root cause analysis (RCA) to address several mechanical problems in various production industries. First, we briefly contextualize the defnition of RCA, list the proper implementation steps for applying RCA to an engineeringproblem, and discuss its benefts concerning mitigating expenses in construction works, at aproduction plant, or in any another situation that requires an analysis of this nature. The studiesreferenced herein describe different cases wherein the RCA methodology has been deployed todetermine the reason why critical equipment parts fail. Based on this review, the following mostcommon crucial steps are determined: explaining the nature of the failing element; developing aphysicochemical characterization of the element’s material through spectroscopy, micrography,and fractography; and in some cases, applying design concepts through fnite element analysis. Additionally, the study element is compared against recent or previous research on possiblefailure mechanisms to determine its probable root cause. Finally, we offer recommendations formitigating some failure risks, resulting in operational and economic improvement.eng
dc.descriptionEn este artículo, se presenta una revisión bibliográfca acerca de la implementación delanálisis de causa raíz (RCA, por sus siglas en inglés) a diversos problemas presentados en elementosmecánicos en diversas industrias del sector productivo. Se hace una breve contextualización sobrequé es el RCA y los pasos que se deben realizar para poder efectuarlo de una manera correcta en unproblema ingenieril y su utilidad en cuanto a la mitigación de gastos, en una obra, en una planta, o encualquier otra situación que merezca realizar una investigación de esta naturaleza. Las investigaciones mostradas en este artículo exponen diferentes casos que aplican la metodología RCA para determinar la causa de falla de piezas críticas dentro de diversos equipos. El común de estas indagacionesmuestra unos pasos que son imprescindibles, como explicar la naturaleza del elemento de falla, desarrollar una caracterización fsicoquímica del material del elemento mediante técnicas de espectroscopia, micrografía, fractografía y, en algunos casos, aplicación de los conceptos de diseño medianteel análisis por elementos fnitos. Además, se hace una comparación del elemento de estudio coninvestigaciones recientes o previas sobre mecanismos de falla posible a fn de determinar la posiblecausa raíz de falla del elemento estudiado. En algunos casos, los autores dan recomendaciones parala mitigación de los riesgos de falla, que llevan consigo un mejoramiento operativo y econó
