The 8D process is a problem solving method for product and process improvement. 8D is short for eight disciplines which originated from the Ford TOPS (Team Oriented Problem Solving) program, first published approximately 1987. The strength of the 8D process lies in its structure and discipline. 8D uses a composite methodology, utilizing best practices from various existing approaches.
