Root cause analysis is a technique performed to identify the underlying reasons why a particular problem is occurring. At Epec, we do a lot of problem solving. As manufacturers, we strive to discover better, more efficient ways to delight our customers. Whether we are working on an 8D CAPA or running an A3 Project, we are often working to determine the foundational cause of issues as the means to solving the problem.
Somewhere around the turn of the century, maybe in the last decade or so, there was a change in the job market. New requirements for employees coming into the job market, a higher standard. The days of getting high paying jobs based simply off prior work experience are behind us; that experience still means something, but not as much as it used to. So what are employers looking for then? A college degree.
At Epec, we take workforce training very seriously. We readily invest in workforce education because it is a time-tested, proven path to improving manufacturing process development and customer satisfaction. In our experience, the educated worker is not only productive, they are adaptable problem solvers focused on satisfying our customers' most demanding needs.
At Epec, our staff members are our most valuable resource and we believe in empowering employees for success. In this company, we celebrate each others success and support each others challenges. We strive to attract, hire, develop and retain passionate, talented, high performing individuals that are driven by our mission which is to provide a cost savings, technical resource and delivery advantage for our customers. We are committed to recruiting the best people that want to share our success, fit in our culture and live by our core values.
