Custom Labels

Create your own labels for all the traceable fields. Every company uses their particular language. 8D Manager lets you take your language and apply them to the traceable fields. Your traceability will transfer to all the reports and forms. You can also change the names of the action fields too. For example, you can change the action field "D3 Containment" to "Isolation"

With the customized labels, you can add your company's name. For your formal Quality Management System, you can add document numbers, revisions and dates.

5Y Reports

With a click, you can insert any of the 5Y root causes into the root cause section of corrective action report. For the primary 5Y root cause, you can assign a corrective action item in the 5Y report, and this will transfer to the corrective action section of the corrective action report.
