This course covers the training syllabus requirements of AS13000 – Problem Solving Requirements for Suppliers. The AS13000 standard mandates the use of the Eight Disciplines (8D) approach to structured problem solving to provide a repeatable structured approach irrespective of customer.
The 8D approach provides organisations with a step by step approach to problem solving activities
- D0 – Implement Immediate Containment and Prepare for 8D
- D1 – Form the Team
- D2 – Define the Problem
- D3 – Develop Containment Actions
- D4 – Identify and Verify Root Causes
- D5 – Identify Corrective Action
- D6 – Implement Corrective Actions
- D7 – Define and Plan Preventive Action
- D8 – Recognise the Team
Following a robust problem solving approach is critical to ensure that root causes are correctly identified and eliminated to prevent future occurrence of repeat issues. The AS13000 standard requires that suppliers use the 8D process to respond to a customer request for corrective and preventive action.
Who Should Attend?
The AS13000 standard states that “The correct training of 8D practitioners is key to the successful outcome of the process. Each supplier shall employ or have access to a problem solving practitioner who has been trained by a training provider meeting the requirement of the training syllabus”.
The course is primarily aimed at those who will lead supplier 8D problem solving activities.
