Eight Disciplines (8D) Problem-Solving Team Approach
The 8 Disciplines (8D) problem-solving model was implemented by Ford in the 1980s as part of its Team Oriented Problem Solving (TOPS) program. 8D is a robust and structured approach to identifying, correcting and eliminating recurring problems. Though it originated in the automotive sector, it can be applied to any industry. This course provides an overview of the formalized 8D problem-solving approach, utilizing the most frequently used techniques.

Practical exercises will show students how to use the techniques effectively and become a culture of thinkers. 8D provides team synergy and offers strategies to identify the root cause and implement containment actions as well as corrective and preventive action plans to get rid of the problem.
