  Reaction to 8D versus 6 Sigma
Ayowale Adeyemi Philips, ICT Consultant, Nigeria, Member
  Six Sigma is a tool that, when utilized, will significantly improve customer satisfaction by constantly reducing defects and variation in every aspect of the business. It has the effect of accelerating existing improvement processes, thus enabling an organization to obtain its goals of complete customer satisfaction.
8D Problem Solving is a team approach for product and process improvement and for complementing the efforts of continuous improvement.

  The above instruments have to be applied both together. The 1st one tell you if a deviance is affecting your process; the 2nd one shall guide you into the solution.

  6 Sigma is Proactive 8D is Reactive

  - 6 Sigma is a process of knowing and reducing variation so that consistency is achieved within prescribed limits. This is a proactive process of achieving and sustaining quality.
- 8D starts from a deviation / problem and systematically finds solutions in the short run, long run and find methods to keep that in control. This is a kind of reactive method but with the same objectives.
One tries to achieve quality by providing value and the other by eliminating defects.
