The 8D prob­lem-solv­ing process was estab­lished in the ear­ly 1980s by the Ford Motor Com­pa­ny with the goal of stan­dard­iz­ing and improv­ing prob­lem-solv­ing capa­bil­i­ties in their sup­ply chain. Launched under the name of Team Ori­ent­ed Prob­lem-Solv­ing Using the Eight Dis­ci­plines,” it’s com­mon­ly prac­ticed as 8D. Learn how to form teams, con­tain prob­lems, scope projects, iden­ti­fy root caus­es, imple­ment cor­rec­tive actions and pre­ven­tive mea­sures, and rec­og­nize the team’s success.
