    What Our Clients Say

  • "We validated the Logic Tree methodology after learning about it through Bob Latino's article, Root Cause Analysis Versus Shallow Cause Analysis: What's the Difference? The Logic Tree Approach is now our system standard, and we've adopted the PROACT® software as well. Our system goal is to make our RCA's more proactive and to capitalize on the RCA lessons learned to prevent harm across the system. The Reliability Center staff has been very responsive to our training and software needs over the years."

  • "I've long known what an RCA is supposed to do, but not how to get there. Using the PROACT software helped to easily apply the RCA discipline to produce analyses that are robust and meaningful.
