A.C.P. Root Cause Analysis Methodology

Very simple methodology summarized in just 3 words applicable to any problem solving domain and its activities including software troubleshooting and debugging:

Artifacts. Checklists. Patterns.

As an example of checklists and patterns please see these 3 presentations related to memory dump and software trace artifacts:

Introduction to Pattern-Driven Software Problem Solving

Fundamentals of Complete Crash and Hang Memory Dump Analysis

Pattern-Driven Memory Dump Analysis 

I’m now working on a detailed presentation of this methodology.
