Effective defect elimination at scale

A program approach designed to solve any problem, organization wide

Cordant™ Asset Defect Elimination is a system used to identify cause and effect relationships for a defined problem, event or incident. This effective causal identification is critical to generating effective solutions and thereby solving recurring or systemic problems and eliminating defects across the enterprise. Cordant™ Asset Defect Elimination manages the process of defect/problem prioritization and analysis triggers. The tool is used to conduct analysis with a scalable depth of analysis based on severity of the problem, develop effective solutions, track progress and implement outcomes, leverage effective solutions across entire organizations where applicable.

Effectively analyze problems to mitigate risk

Cordant Asset Defect Elimination enables flexible and bulk data analysis. Supporting multiple methodologies, you can apply the right level of analysis to suit the defect or problem. 

  • supports multiple methodologies
  • store evidence 
  • benchmark causal categories
Connect to Strategy

Leverage learnings and connect to reliability strategy

Using one system to capture and manage all analysis, learnings, solutions, and implementation enables learnings to be applied to all sites and departments. This is further supported by a data model that codifies the language used for causal analysis and allows this to be tagged to specific assets while driving system cause prioritization.

Prioritize Defect Elimination
Prioritize Defect Elimination

Prioritize and classify defects enterprise-wide

Defects and resolutions can be prioritized based on business exposure and benefit, and level of effort can be determined based on severity and problem types. Ensures focused effort, traceability of solution implementation and high ROI.
