Root cause analysis. What exactly does it mean in the context of an engineering job and how can I prepare for this interview?

So I have a job interview coming up for a hardware mechanical engineer position. One of the requirements is the ability to do root cause analysis, documentation, and recommendation.
I can't say I've done formal root cause analysis beyond general troubleshooting (this thing is broken so I should fix it). How can I best prepare myself and demonstrate that I can do the job?
Are there any books/articles/websites on this topic? I want to show that I'm proactive in my willingness to learn.
