Root Cause Analysis Tip: Equifactor Reference and Custom Tables

When using the Equifactor® module of the TapRooT® Software, you have the opportunity to store some very specific data in each Symptom or Possible Cause that can help your equipment experts with their troubleshooting efforts.  Each of these Equifactor® items has an associated Equifactor® Reference area that allows you to store your own custom data.

The new information is now available, including the picture you attached:

This information will make a great tool for your new troubleshooters!
