About Root Cause Analysis and CAPA using 8-D Problem Solving Method
Errors and defects are a problem in virtually every industry. The goal of the defect-free/error-free product or service delivery is the aim of every company.
However, in order to eliminate defects or errors permanently, you must use a disciplined approach in order to ensure that the problem does not recur. One of the most widely-used tools in the 8 Disciplines (8D) methodology.
8D requires you to identify and fix the problem immediately (put a band-aid on it) while identifying the Root Cause(s), and take steps to address the problem in the short term as well as in the long term (permanent fix).
In this interactive workshop, you’ll learn how to apply the many tools used to identify possible causes, determine (with data) which is the true root cause (or causes, as there may be some compounding of problems occurring), and how to fix them – permanently.
8D is used by a wide variety of industries – from service to design, manufacturing, and fulfillment. 8D has been used by sales forces, development teams, hourly personnel, and C suite effectively, and is a technique that is easily mastered.
