# Does anyone have a Training Exercise for 5 Whys Problem Solving?

#### Waynimo

Hello, I'm conducting training on RCA and as part of my explanation of 5 Why analysis, I wanted to conduct an exercise, but I'm have difficulty developing something - Has anyone ever used an exercise or simulation for 5 why that they could share?

It opened fine when I tried. A very nice ppt, thank you. However, I'm more interested in an actual exercise for a class to work through

Re: Does anyone have an Exercise for 5 Why?

There is a "good" event from many years ago - a train collided with a school bus in Fox River Grove IL. There is a wikipedia writeup at I've used it before in Systems classes as an example of a system failure. You could keep the printout and run through asking the five why's - but don't stop at blaming the bus driver!

Re: Does anyone have an Exercise for 5 Why?

I did a RCA class in Indiana a few winters back. The training room is seldom used, and has it's own thermostat. When I got there, it was apparent that no one had turned on the heat, and be class start it was a balmy 50 (f). When we approached the 5 Why exercise, we did it on why it was so cold in the classroom (it was up to about 65 by then).
