More Info


Each corrective action can have its own 5Y Report. Many customers ask for a 5Y report which narrows the possible root causes to the primary root cause.

4M Data Entry

Each corrective action can have its own 4M Report. Use the 4M to investigate root causes and corrective action. If your customer requires a Fishbone Diagram, use this.


Track all your returns through the company. See all RMAs together or per corrective action. To help with the tracking, you can assign your own tractability to the RMA

Find Corrective Actions Quickly within Your Master List of Your 8D Records

Quickly find corrective actions by customer, problem, type, dates etc.  Click on the customer name and then click filter and only those records for that customer shows. Double-click the record to edit.  Filter the master list to only see internal or only open or by data range. Further filter and see only open for a given customer.

You can quickly track if you're making improvements to customer issues. Document your savings over time. This also helps document customer satisfaction.

By tracking costs with codes, you assign responsible areas such as department, employees, equipment, and materials. You decide on the codes. With these charts you can quickly tell where to focus continual improvements.

Employee Reports

Quickly see the overdue actions by employee, or all open actions. Email the reports to the employee.

Verification Actions

For demanding customers you can detail exactly how you verified the actions. This prints on the corrective action reports under the verification name and date.
