E1NS Complaints & 8D

Structured and guided procedure in 8 process steps

The integration of the e1ns methodology into the product/system structure offers ideal conditions for systematically implementing and documenting complaints-relevant processes.

  • Structured and controlled procedure in 8 process steps (VDA: 8 dimensions) for the permanent elimination of complaints.
  • Provides traceable and analyzable documentation about the fault process.
  • Avoidance of repeated faults through sustainable implementation of corrective and preventive actions.

With e1ns, quality methods are networked so that hidden causes of complaints are discovered with help by the FMEA and findings on product/process improvements are included in requirement and specification analyses.
