Management system needs periodic audits to check the efficacy of the system. Every audit discovers some deficiencies. It is imperative that audit deficiency and nonconformities during normal working are to be effectively closed with proper document backup. A deficiency can be closed and only when effective measure is taken to pinpoint the actual cause and the effect of that deficiency on the quality of products and services. The determination of the pinpoint reason is what is known as Root Cause. It is necessary that one should learn the scientific basis on arriving at the root cause of the problem. More often than not it is noticed that instead of arriving at a decision about the cause in a methodical way people tend to arrive at solution first and then work around to build documentation justifying it.
