8D Problem Solving Training

Training Overview

This training provides a detailed understanding of a structured problem-solving process. Working through structured steps and using a variety of linked tools, practical examples and exercises are used in the different steps to improve the learning and understanding of the material.

What will you learn?

During the 8D Training participants will learn to:

  • Describe the benefits of using the 8D model for solving problems.
  • Identify the steps of the 8D problem solving model.
  • Know when to apply 8D.
  • Identify which problem solving tools are best used in each step in the 8D process.
  • Design a Check Sheet for recording data.
  • Construct a Pareto Chart.
  • Use an IS/IS NOT analysis for problem definition.
  • Use the 5 Whys (Multiple Whys).
  • Use Structured Brainstorming techniques.
  • Create a Cause and Effect (Fishbone) Diagram.
  • Create a Histogram.
  • Create a Scatter Diagram.
  • Describe the fundamentals of Value Stream Mapping.
  • Basic principles of Statistical Process Control.
  • Describe the use of Process Capability (Cp and Cpk).

The Benefits of the 8D Problem Solving Training

  • Enables personnel to become more effective at problem solving.
  • Helps to establish a formal process for solving and managing problems.

Who Should Attend the 8D Problem Solving Training?

  • All personnel who lead, or are involved with, problem-solving and continual improvement activities.
