Toyota’s 8 Steps for Practical Problem Solving

Toyota’s 8 Steps for Practical Problem Solving are rooted in Walter Shewhart‘s (and Dr. Deming‘s) PDCA Cycle (Plan Do Check Act). Toyota expanded on “Plan” with Steps 1-5 whereas “Do-Check-Act” correspond with Steps 6, 7 and 8. Both systems are based on the Scientific Method and help support a culture of continuous process improvement.
