Re: 7 D Format

8D is an established problem solving tool that Ford coined (from existing problem solving methodology!). Basically just the 8 steps I am sure you are aware of.......not ever heard of 7D and I can't say it would be that useful!

All the steps in an 8D incorporate the established PDCA cycle, with reviews and interim plans to contain the issue.

I often find that "Interim Containment Action" is not always comprehensively used, as most faults we encounter can either not be fixed and scrapped! OR can be used under concession, therefore this could be considered an 7D. Maybe someone has incorporated two steps into one. I think the format is fine as it is!

I would not reccomend avoiding any steps in the 8D especially if it is for FORD!
