Welcome to A3 Problem Solving!

A3 Problem Solving is a team based data and process driven structured method to get to root causes and implement solutions in your lab. The A3 Problem Solving method consists of 8 sections that all fit on one large sheet of paper. Four sections define the Current State and four define the Future or Desired State. You will benefit from learning how to execute each of the sections or elements to solve problems permanently. The course will take approximately 2 hours and you do it at your own pace. 

This course will prepare you to formulate an A3 – organize each of the 8 elements of an A3 diagram for your lab. You will learn how to integrate: process flow diagrams, five why problem solving, fishbone diagrams, and Plan Do Check Act (PDCA cycles) for your A3 problem analysis.
