8D Problem Solving Process, also known as TOPSTeam Oriented Problem Solving Methodology, is a team oriented approach to solving critical problems in the production process.

Goals of this method are to find the root cause of the problem using statistical tools, develop containment actions to protect the customer and take preventive actions to prevent recurrence of the problem.

This method was developed by FORD MOTOR COMPANY in 1987 and comprises 8 steps, and follows the PDCA logic. FORD refers to their current variant as G8D (Global 8D). The Ford 8D manual is extensive and covers chapter by chapter how to go about addressing, quantifying and resolving engineering issues.
