Root cause analysis is a critical part of the diagnostics expert system. The goal of root cause analysis is to allocate root cause by analyzing fault information with observed data. After gathering all data the two important questions that one needs to answer are: • Does the available data provide enough information to allocate root causes? • How to organize the data into meaningful structures so that the data with similar features will be grouped together?

Assembly Line Anomaly Detection and Root Cause Analysis Using Machine Learning
TLDR
The results showed that there are seven rejection causes for both product series, whereas the first three causes are responsible for 85% of the rejection rates, and assembly machines engineers reported a significant reduction in the rejected rates in both assembly machines after tuning the specification limits of the rejected causes identified by this research.

Methodology for Integrated Failure-Cause Diagnosis with Bayesian Approach : Application to Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment
TLDR
The Bayesian Belief Network (BBN) is proposed using symptoms, collected across drift sources, that improves equipment breakdown decisions by accurately identifying the source of product quality drift and is evaluated in a thermal treatment workshop at the world reputed semiconductor manufacturer.

This book gives a unified, up-to-date and self-contained account, with a Bayesian slant, of such methods, and more generally to probabilistic methods of sequence analysis. Expand
A general method applicable to the search for similarities in the amino acid sequence of two proteins.
TLDR
A computer adaptable method for finding similarities in the amino acid sequences of two proteins has been developed and it is possible to determine whether significant homology exists between the proteins to trace their possible evolutionary development. Expand
