Abstract

This paper has focused on two objectives. The first objective is to study the 8D methodology which is an 8 disciplinary approach. It consist of 8-steps to be followed by quality improvement team for problem solving as well as for product and process improvements. The second objective is to apply the 8D methodology and to analyze its effectiveness. In order to apply the 8D methodology and to analyze its effectiveness a case study was conducted in a small scale manufacturing industry (ISO 9001:2000 certified). The results of the case study show that the 8D methodology is effective. After applying 8D methodology the total rejection for coupling disc part was reduced to 6.57% from 37.95 %.
