The 5 Whys was created by Sakichi Toyoda, founder of the Toyota Corporation, and has developed into a widely accepted problem-solving tool that is part of Kaizen, Lean Manufacturing, and Six Sigma.
For this assignment, think about the basic problem you are trying to solve with your W/CBT Module. Download, and drill down further into your problem to help you identify the root cause(s). This may help you focus your training.
Some points to remember:
- Don’t just list 5 separate reasons for your problem. Each answer should only refer to the question and item above it.
- Your answer cannot be because of a person. It can be because of policy or a procedure implemented by a person, but not about the person themselves (not “It’s because Joe makes bad decisions”).
- It’s possible you may have to ask more than 5 questions, or it’s possible you could find your answer in 4 questions. Try to drill down to 5 answers.
- There may be multiple root causes for the problem. See the industrial example in Scrap loss reduction using the 5-whys analysis (Links to an external site.) from the reading. In this case, you may need to do a Pareto Chart (Links to an external site.) to determine which root cause(s) are causing the majority of the problem and/or are the most critical or cost-effective to solve. For this exercise, just determine one root cause of the problem (preferably, the one that you will solve with the W/CBT Module).
This was the response from the professor from the assignment you did just a little awhile ago and I go a 50 on the assignment, red his directions below and fix the assignment please. Attached below is original work
You need to review and revise your Five Whys Worksheet. The items are not optimally developed. Therefore, they provide unclear information about the issue and its root causes. Taking the time to really drilling down will help you have a better understanding of the issue and, consequently, develop an effective W/CBT. The issue with your assignment is that your Five Whys were not fully developed. Therefore, it is unclear to the reader what exactly the issues really are. Fully developing each why will help you understand the root causes fully.
