8D (Eight Disciplines of Problem Solving) is a meticulous process used to solve complex problems. This is a popular method for problem solving because it is reasonably easy to teach and effective. 8D uses composite problem solving methodology, by borrowing tools and techniques from various approaches.The 8D Problem-Solving Process helps you do both of these seemingly-contradictory things, in a professional and controlled way.
Benefits of 8D Problem Solving Technique
Effective approach at finding a root cause, developing proper actions to eliminate root causes, and implementing the permanent corrective action. Also helps to explore the control system that allowed the problem to escape. The Escape Point is studied for the purpose of improving the ability of the Control System to detect the failure or cause when and if it should occur again. Finally the Prevention Loop explores the systems that permitted the condition that allowed the Failure and Cause Mechanism to exist in the first place.
