Negative Branches in a Logic Tree, how things can go unexpectedly wrong

I happen to hear a Robotic Process Automation (RPA) vendor’s pitch and he was speaking in cause-and-effect, demonstrating how RPA  will not destroy jobs, but on the contrary create more jobs than it destroys.

The occasion was too good not to try it, therefore, in this episode of my Critical Thinking playlist, I am:

  • translating the pitch into a Current Reality Tree (using cause-and-effect logic)
  • straightening the flawed logic
  • looking for Negative Branches, i.e. what can go wrong
  • advising about Critical Thinking

  1. Hi Chris,

    I got some years ago a perfect example of what you described.

    Implementing a RPA in a QC lab I discovered that the valuable part of the job (analysis) was given to the RPA and that the non-valuable (wash cleaning of the spare) was given to the lab technicians.

    They were really not happy about that situation and I realized immediately a short term high risk of non-acceptance of the RPA into the lab meaning no future for the system.

    I discussed the point with the responsible and even if we knew the solution we decided to launch a task force with the lab technicians to fix this issue.

    To make the story short, at the end we bought a washing machine and the RPA worked more than 20 years.
