Problem Solving for IATF16949:2016
Consistently IATF highlights Problem Solving as the most common nonconformity. There are plenty of steps your organisation can take to enhance its problem-solving capabilities, and in an IATF 16949-compliant manner.
This problem solving for IATF 16949 course helps companies prepare themselves to meet the requirements of the standard. It’s a practical approach to problem-solving that focuses on empowering employees with the knowledge of how to address issues.
The term ‘8D’ is commonplace in engineering and manufacturing organisations these days. However, IATF 16949 does not mandate ‘8D’,and organisations tend to focus more on the ‘8’ than the ‘D’.
The ‘D’ stands for ‘disciplines’ and throughout the two-day course we will continue to emphasise that having the organisational discipline to follow the steps, is as important at as the steps themselves.
Engineers of any background or specialism;
Managers and Leaders;
The principles of problem solving, and the techniques explained are also just as applicable to those in non-technical or non-managerial roles.
Upon completion of the course you will receive an Industry Forum certificate of attendance.
