Removing the Root »
The PDCA toolkit contains problem solving templates in 22 languages to systematically identify problems and eliminate their root causes, effectively preventing reoccurrence. Completing the 4 phases of the Shewart cycle (P-D-C-A) involves 5 specific steps on the template: (1) Record the problem, (2) Analyze the problem using the Ishikawa or Fishbone diagram, (3) Identify the root-cause using 5-why method, (4) Taking action to eliminate (or reduce the effect of) the root cause, (5) Validate effectiveness, update standards, and formally close the PDCA.

To make those problem solving templates broadly available, PDCA templates are translated into English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Dutch, French, Italian, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Slovak, Czech, Hungarian, Russian, Bulgarian, Polish, Indonesian, Arabic, Turkish, Japanese, Chinese.
