CEDAC or Cause and Effect Diagrams Adding Cards was developed by Ryuji Fukuda as a simple problem-solving tool. Attendees will learn why problem identification and problem-solving are key skills necessary in a continuous improvement environment. They will learn proven techniques for uncovering and working through problems that affect day-to-day operations. Two specific problem-solving methods are introduced to capture key factual information about problems in a structured manner which gives students a logical method to develop, test and implement countermeasures to specific problems. Students are given a hands-on opportunity to practice how to use both the Why Not diagram and the CEDAC problem-solving tools and documentation methods and will learn how problem-solving activities can also be used to focus improvement activities. The class is an excellent foundation for companies just starting to explore the role of problem-solving in their journey to operational excellence and provides many valuable tips and ideas for companies that may be further along in their problem-solving efforts.
