Re: What is the difference between a 7D format and an 8D format?

I personally prefer and use a 4 step process:
1-problem description
2-assignment and tracking date
3-root cause and corrective action

Of course, I'm not in a company where 8D is a customer requirement. I'm not opposed to 8D. More important I think is the requirements we use to define when a corrective action should be written: significant or repeated events and it is based on facts and data.
