This webinar will begin with an explanation of the process and how it originally conflicted with all regulatory bodies worldwide and how it now can be applied, with minor adjustments, to counter those original difficulties. The webinar will also discuss when the process should be used, how it should be staffed, and the process for its use.

Finally, the webinar will detail each of the steps of the process and the problem-solving tools that are used.

Why should you Attend:
Today, the Global 8D Problem Solving Process has become a standard in many industries as a problem-solving and improvement process to determine the root cause of complex multi-dimensional problems requiring multiple functions interacting to solve.

Unfortunately, the process as originally structured, was at odds with both FDA and ISO expectations and requirements in one very critical area. The 8D process essentially placed corrective action verification before implementation rather than after it. This approach placed the emphasis of verification on the implementation of the corrective actions rather than on their effectiveness which is a crucial tenant of ISO and other regulatory requirements.

As taught in this webinar, the 8D process is so effective in determining root causes that tailoring the process to meet regulatory requirements is simply a matter of understanding how to effectively apply the approach.
