Project Management - Define CAR and DAR.

Define CAR and DAR.

- CAR – Causal analysis and resolution

CAR identifies problem and perform a root cause analysis of the same. CAR needs to be performed at every project phase. Fishbone diagram is one of the ways to perform CAR.

- DAR- Decision Analysis and Resolution.

This is to analyze possible decisions using a formal evaluation process that identifies alternatives against current resources.

What is DAR (Decision Analysis and Resolution)?

To analyze possible decisions by using a formal evaluation process which identifies the alternatives against established criteria is done by the DAR. For example a project is to use a third party tools and will not depend on only one tool but evaluate by using three to four tools. In this process certain alternatives are available in case of problems.

What is CAR (Causal Analysis and Resolution)?

Causal Analysis and Resolution is the process of analyzing:

- defects, problems and good practices/positive triggers in a project.
- Root cause of the same
- Identity the respective corrective and preventive actions
- Tracking these tasks to closure.

The identification of the root causes scientifically and carrying out their corrective and preventive actions is the advantage of CAR. At the initial stage, all phase and at the end stage of the project, the CAR is needed to be performed on a monthly basis. CAR can be done by using ‘fishbone’ diagram.
