About the Course

Students will learn a "start-to-finish" problem solving method that yields results in a predictable, fast timeframe. This is achieved with:

·         Using a series of progressive learning lectures.

·          Participating in "hands-on" activities.

·         Working from a specially designed case study workbook that spotlights a large but fictitious problem that students must work through.

The Eight Discipline approach is team based problem solving system. This structured methodology is based on the following disciplines:

  1. Establish the team.
  2. Describe the problem.
  3. Develop an interim containment action.
  4. Define/verify the root cause.
  5. Select and verify the permanent corrective action.
  6. Implement/validate the permanent corrective action.
  7. Prevent recurrence.
  8. Recognize the team.

With lecture reinforced by activities for each discipline, students learn how to use the discipline and stay focused on the "big picture". 

As we go from describing the problem, creating a problem statement, and developing an interim containment action that prevents your problems from reaching your customers,  we review the popularly used problem solving and analysis tools used to help determine root cause:

  • Fishbone - Cause and Effect - Ishikawa diagrams.
  • Pareto Analysis.
  • Histogram and Tally Sheets.
  • Cause and Effect diagrams.
  • Effect and Cause diagrams.
  • Repeated Why:
    - Sometimes called the 5-Why
  • Systematic Thinking.
  • Comparative Analysis.
  • Is- Is Not analysis.
  • Timeline Analysis.

Not only can you bring a structured problem solving method into your company, you can also bring everyone up to speed on how to use some of the most common tools in quality for various problem solving tasks.  This is just another reason why this class is so valuable.

Using the tools above helps students to find the true root cause.  In addition, practicing to use the various tools helps students to find the tools that are easiest for them or that work best under certain conditions.   We'll students how to find the single root cause. 

Once a root cause has been determined, we'll begin teaching how to create a list of possible permanent corrective actions.  We'll explore how to choose the action to be deployed and how to validate that permanent solution.

We'll talk about preventing recurrence by a structured approach to updating necessary documentation, training, and mistake proofing. Discussion and activity at this point is based on the 5S's and Poka Yoke tools used to help prevent recurrence.  We'll even talk about why recurrence occurs and how students can prevent that from happening at their organization.

We will cover "recognizing the team" as being of present and on-going importance. 

Finally, we'll close the corrective action.  We'll document the lessons learned for possible usage in the future. 

This course includes many of the popular tools used and discussed in some of our Six Sigma Training Courses.  You'll receive expert instruction by industry veterans.  As always, you're backed by the quality that QAI customers have come to expect from our ISO9001 registered company.
