8D (Eight Disciplines) Problem Solving
By:
Jack B. ReVelle, Ph.D

8D (Eight Disciplines) Problem Solving is a method used to approach and resolve problems which is typically employed by quality engineers or other professionals.  Its purpose is to identify, correct and eliminate recurring problems, and is useful in product and process improvement.  It establishes a permanent corrective action based on statistical analysis of the problem (when appropriate) and focuses on the origin of the problem by determining its root causes.  Although it originally comprised eight stages, or ‘disciplines’, it was later augmented by an initial planning stage.  The 8D follows the logic of the Plan, Do, Check, Act (PDCA) cycle.
