Should D1 and D2 Be Changed?
reader1, Partner, China

You have to describe problem at first, then set up a team.

Understand How it Works
George Smith, Manager, United States
You should understand that D0, D1 and D2 all work together.
The idea is that D0 has some information of the problem, basic information customer, parts defect codes and other information especially the emergency response action (era).
D1 starts the team, get at least a champion or 1 or 2 members.
As the problem definition gets traction in D2 and more detail and interim containment, the make up of the team will change in which case you can just circle back and update the team list.
The team make up and roles are continuously monitored to make sure the correct people are part of the problem solving team as the details and can emerge.
Remember this is not really a serial process, it is a parallel/serial process.

Look at the Chart Carefully
reader1, Partner, China
I agree with your description, George.
if we have another close look at the chart again, we see that there is no if-then statement in the chart flow between D0.. D1, and D2!
This is the case in the process D4, but not in the D1 and D2.
What is parallel / serial? Once you know Pert, you may not put forward such problem here.
On the other hand, if you form close-loop adjustment between D1 and D2, this will be worst. You even donít know what will be the next steps to solve. Because you donít know what is the optimum people choice. And what is the optimum measurement for the problem?

Pert and Eight D Problem Solving
Sandip Pandya, Other, United States
The resources and their effective use are factored in the productivity of the process. Pert can monitor constrictions related to time and resources, and help seek relevant corrective measures for a timely conclusion of the process repetition.
However, the effectiveness of corrective measures and eradication of the problem will require use of eight D problem solving or alternative methods.
In the 21st century, the methods to resolve the problem have become more scientific than alternative measures of administrative controls. If unloading of casting is sequential in the product manufacture, Pert may not identify this process is a bottleneck in the sequence of manufacturing process in comparison of other problems. Pert is more effective as a monitoring tool and related issues. Eight D problem solving has distinct application to identify root cause and its permanent elimination.
