Using Defect Mapping as a Problem Solving Tool

Tuesday, Sept 15, 2015

Defect Mapping is a problem solving tool used to visually identify and track physical locations and types of defects on a product. As a defect occurs during a process on a product, the location of the defect is identified on a map.

The Defect Map provides information on the physical location of the defect on the product and additional pertinent information as well. The more visual you can capture issues, the easier it is to move forward to defining root cause and corrective action.
