BENEFITS OF DOCUMENT

DOCUMENT DESCRIPTION

Although the DMAIC and 8D problem solving methodologies are highly rigorous and require quite a fair bit of tools for data and statistical analysis, these techniques are tailored more for engineers and other professional/technical staff.

However, for shopfloor supervisors, technicians and operators as well as office/administrative support staff, a lighter and simpler problem solving approach is more suitable. The Five Steps of Problem Solving process was developed specifically for this purpose.

Based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act approach, the Five Steps of Problem Solving consist of:

(1) Define the Problem
(2) Analyze Root Cause
(3) Develop Countermeasures
(4) Implement Solutions
(5) Evaluate & Follow Up.

The tools covered in this presentation are the more commonly used ones in problem solving, process improvement and kaizen activities. They include Brainstorming, Flowchart, Pareto Chart, Cause & Effect Diagram and last but not least the Five Whys.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

1. Understand the principles and key concepts of problem solving
