The 8D report, or 8 Disciplines, is a problem-solving method used in industries like manufacturing and engineering. It follows eight structured steps to address and prevent recurring issues. These steps include forming a team, defining the problem, taking immediate containment actions, identifying the root cause, implementing corrective and preventive measures, verifying their effectiveness, and finally, recognizing the team's efforts. This systematic approach ensures not only the resolution of immediate problems but also the prevention of similar issues in the future.
