Deutsch: Kausalität / Español: Causalidad / Português: Causalidade / Français: Cause - Cause / Italiano: Causa
Causality (also referred to as causation) is the relation between an event (the cause) and a second event (the effect), where the second event is understood as a consequence of the first.

In an industrial or manufacturing context, "cause" refers to the underlying reason or source of an event, problem, or issue. The term is often used in the context of root cause analysis, a process of identifying the root cause of a problem or issue in order to prevent it from happening again in the future. Here are a few examples of the use of "cause" in this context:

  1. Equipment failure cause: The underlying reason for an equipment failure, such as a mechanical issue, electrical problem, or operator error.

  2. Production line shutdown cause: The reason for a production line shutdown, such as a machine malfunction, supply chain disruption, or safety concern.

  3. Quality control issue cause: The source of a quality control issue, such as a problem with a raw material, manufacturing process, or packaging operation.

  4. Shipping delay cause: The underlying reason for a shipping delay, such as a logistical problem, weather-related issue, or customs delay.

  5. Energy consumption cause: The source of energy consumption in a manufacturing or production process, such as lighting, heating, cooling, or equipment operation.

These are just a few examples of the use of "cause" in an industrial context, and there are many other types of problems, issues, and events in industrial and manufacturing operations that may require root cause analysis to identify the underlying cause.
