Eight disciplines of problem solving
Construction Quality Planning Guide, Draft for Consultation, Published by the Construction Innovation Hub in May 2020, suggests that the Eight Disciplines of Problem Solving (8D) refers to: ‘A problem-solving approach originally developed by the Ford Motor Company, now used throughout the automotive industry; it has also been successfully applied in other industries, e.g., manufacturing, healthcare, and finance. A useful tool in both product and process improvement, 8D is a methodology for identifying, correcting and eliminating recurring problems.'
