OIP IMPLEMENTATION Operations Improvement Plan Implementation The potential data collection tools and techniques I can utilize is the Deming’s PDCA cycle, A3 Thinking that is a reporting system, designed as part of the Toyota Production System, that can be used for decision making, problem solving and process redesign. A3 thinking (also known as A3 planning) is a tool developed at Toyota, which takes Deming’s PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) improvement cycle and articulates it as a targeted problem-solving technique. All the relevant information required to investigate, solve and document the problem is captured on a single sheet of A3 paper, enabling the story of the problem to be told clearly, concisely and in a fully transferable way. A lot of the power of the A3 report is its simplicity, but this does not mean it is a lightweight tool. Used properly, it is an incredibly effective means of not only solving a problem, but finding its root cause, documenting the resolution, transferring the knowledge and ensuring the resolution stays in place. The content of the A3 report will answer questions relevant to the problem, such as:  What is it we are trying to do?  What is the current state?  What is the root cause?  What are the potential difficulties that need to be overcome?  What solutions are there to these difficulties?  What do we have to do to get these solutions implemented? 2
