A3 Problem solving methodology – As Per Toyota Production System
Date : 9 to 10 January, 2023
Time : 1340 Hrs to 1700 Hrs ( Online Mode )

Complex problems arising every day from cross-functional disciplines in a work environment can wreak havoc and affect your bottom line if the root cause is not identified quickly and correctly. The problems usually persist and recur periodically failing any preventive actions or due to limitations in the problem-solving approach of the untrained individual. 

The industry can benefit by using the A3 problem solving technique, a highly structured, problem-solving tool, used by effective managers across the world. Problems pertaining to Product/Process Quality as well as non-technical - Management / Marketing zones can be addressed using the 7 steps in the A3 problem solving technique which follows the PDCA logic.

This method aims to find the root cause of the problem, develop countermeasures, take actions to prevent the recurrence of the problem and engage in horizontal deployment.

Keeping this in view, IMTMA is organizing an online training on "A3 Problem Solving Methodology".
