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.
