The APS 8D Problem Solving Process Tools training workshop is the most popular on-site training course in our catalog. We are proud to have conducted this course for many thousands of participants all across the USA and numerous locations worldwide.
This two-day 8D training course provides the essential skills and knowledge needed to effectively and efficiently solve problems using the industry standard Global 8D model.
The course emphasizes the practical use of proven problem-solving tools and includes technical concepts, classroom discussion, and hands-on exercises. Teams of participants will perform exercises that help to transfer knowledge from the theoretical realm to the practical, in a team-oriented atmosphere.
This on-site training course may be customized to incorporate your company-specific case studies documentation, reports, etc. if you desire.
At the end of this workshop, the participants will be able to lead or participate as an effective team member a team-oriented problem solving effort, using a time-proven structured problem solving strategy (the 8D method) that gets results by:
Solving problems by finding real root causes
Taking action that permanently removes the problem
To achieve the terminal objective, the participants will learn to:
Describe the benefits of using a structured approach for solving problems.
Compare industry standard problem-solving models including 8D, PDCA, and DMAIC.
Implement the steps of the 8D process to solve a problem.
Identify which problem-solving tools are best used in conjunction with each step of the process.
Perform Pareto and IS/IS NOT analyses for problem identification and description.
Perform root cause analysis using structured brainstorming, 5 whys, cause and effect (fishbone or Ishikawa), run chart, and scatter diagram analyses.
Develop, implement, and verify permanent corrective actions using force field analysis, NGT, action matrix, and error proofing techniques.
Describe basic SPC principles including process capability (Cp, CpK).
Each participant will receive a copy of our 125-page Problem Solving Reference Guide and a flash drive loaded with helpful tools, electronic forms, checklists, templates, and case studies. These items can be used to build a robust 8D program and enhance future problem solving activities.
