On the surface, it seems to make sense. A few years ago, I asked our readers to tell me what goes wrong in the factory based upon the general failure cause categories outline in the U.

You replied that the equipment is to blame in less than 20 percent of the occurrences. Nearly 80 percent of what goes wrong can be attributed to people issues. Problems with procedures and training combined are responsible for nearly 40 percent. Management oversight represented about 9 percent.

Also, design problems totaled roughly 9 percent. The bottom line is that human factors are responsible for 75 to 80 percent of what goes wrong in the factory. Reader Data on the Causes of Failures in the Factory. Inthe U. While it was developed to improve aviation safety, it is fully applicable to any reliability-critical application or industry including manufacturing where people are highly integrated in the business processes. DoD statistics suggest that human error is a causal factor in 80 to 90 percent of all mishaps.


As previously discussed, my research into the manufacturing industries similarly suggests that human error accounts for around 80 percent of what goes wrong in plants and factories. Since human error is the dominant failure mechanism in most systems healthcare being no exceptionit should be the focal point of our reliability management system.

The human factors classification system is broadly organized into the three latent failure and one active failure categories.

The human error coding and management system developed by the DoD is quite comprehensive. Likewise, because the failure gfacs system includes latent and active failures, it is fully applicable to the classification of near-misses as well as actual failure events.

By and large, the management system can be adopted in its entirety for use in the manufacturing sector. The DoD has done the heavy lifting by creating fhacs system. We simply need to execute.
