The investigative process of root cause failure analysis and application of continuous improvement often leads to re-engineering the part or process, resulting in improved reliability and extended fife cycle.
This case study illustrates the use of the scientific method in performing a root cause failure analysis. (14,17) The authors (1.) collected data through visual and microscopic examinations; (2.) analyzed that data through fractographic interpretations and basic engineering analyses; (3.) developed hypotheses; (4.) tested those hypotheses through exemplar testing (not presented in this abridged version of the original paper), stress analysis, and additional microscopy; and (5.) selected a final hypothesis: failure by impact.
