Description

Join us for A3 Problem Solving on August 24!

A3 Problem Solving is a continuous improvement approach, first employed at Toyota and typically used by companies following lean manufacturing principles. It provides a simple and systematic approach to understanding a problem, identifying its cause, and creating a solution.

This 8 hour A3 Problem Solving course is an activity based, pencil and paper tool designed to solve specific problems. A3 defines the current condition and looks at the root cause of the issue. The A3 method also guides the user to define clear steps to implement changes and build accountability. Participants will experience a simple and effective way to truly understand the way work happens now and how it can be redesigned effectively.

Seven Steps to A3 Problem Solving:

  • Theme
  • Background
  • Current Condition & Problem Statement
  • Goal Statement
  • Root Cause Analysis
  • Countermeasures
  • Effect Confirmation
  • Follow Up Actions

Objectives

As a result of this workshop participants should be able to:

  • Collect and use meaningful data
  • List advantages of A3 Problem Solving and describe how it is used to eliminate waste and reduce variation
  • Distinguish between value added and non-value added activities
  • Apply A3 thinking along with basic quality tools (cause & effect, multi-voting, value stream mapping, process flow, pictograph, Pareto, run chart, 5-why, 3L5W, scatter diagram, histogram, etc.) to solve actual work related problems
