Simplifying Cause Analysis: A Structured Approach

Simplifying Cause Analysis: A Structured Approach

Chet s self-reliance and problem-solving abilities emerged early when, at 14 years old, he was given some parts for a Ham Radio receiver. To build this receiver, he had to teach himself calculus and electronics. Before his farther died, when he was 16 years old, Chet had designed the circuits for and then built this receiver using parts from discarded TVs. His father s death pushed Chet into early adulthood and responsibilities to help his raise his siblings. After overcoming 16 years of financial and other obstacles, Chet earned a BS in Nuclear Engineering and an AS in Physics/General Studies. Although never earning a degree in the discipline, Chet has had all of the training needed for a degree in Electrical Engineering.

Chet recently retired after over 40 years of experience in the commercial nuclear industry. Chet is the creator of the Cause Road Map© Taxonomy and trained in Kepner-Tregoe, TapRoot®, PII, MORT and other cause investigation and problem-solving techniques. As a result, he has been involved in more cause investigations than he can remember. Prior to his commercial nuclear experience, Chet served in the U.S. Navy aboard three (3) Submarines and completed qualification as an Engineering Watch Supervisor (EWS) (equivalent to a Reactor Operator at a Commercial Nuclear plant). Chet achieved the rank of First Class Petty Officer (EM1-SS) in less than four (4) years, received several Navy commendations, and was recommended for a billet aboard the NR-1 deep submergence research submarine and an LDO commission (both declined for a return to civilian life and completion of his BS degree).
