PHRED has been working on A3 problem solving processes since 1997 to meet specific industry requirements. A3 is traditionally created on paper, which over the years causes problems in retrieving and sharing the information. PHRED provides you with a database to store and retrieve the information you need. PHRED walks you step by step through analyzing the problem, finding root cause and creating an A3. It’s simple enough to be used at either the cell level or across the plant. In lean environments, PHRED is used when holding Kaizen events to track the investigation and store all the associated data.Problem Solving Process
The system takes you through a proven process to problem solve. It creates disciplines for the problem solver to follow to ensure true root cause is established, while fully exploring possible causes and attaching evidential proof as to why causes have been eliminated or accepted. The process is easy to use which increases the number of problem solvers in a company, while the coaching on each page offers guidance to less experienced personnel. You can attach video, diagrams and pictures to give pictorial understanding of the issues. Actions which are delegated to staff generate automatic emails with timely reminders of when answers are due.Database
PHRED includes a comprehensive database which holds all problem solving investigations within the organization and its supply chain. The database allows managers from any one of the global locations to have a virtual go see of the current status, time spent on a problem and the lessons learned. This repository for all data saves valuable time, for instance if a problem is identified in one region, checking the database allows you to see if this has occurred somewhere else and view the CAPA process undertaken. The system helps you eliminate repeat problems which makes more efficient use of time and does away with wastage, creating considerable cost savings for your business.Reports
The system generates all the reports a business would need. The Administration feature on the software allows you to configure the tool to collect the specific information your organization requires. PHRED has many standard reports, individually defined user query reports, management summaries and charts. Export the information into Excel or PDF. Send only the information you want to share with your customers and suppliers. An A3 is designed to be understood in 4 minutes. In more complex problems with a lot of data, this can cause inexperienced problem solvers difficulty. PHRED collects all the data and produces and obstraction of it.Multiple Languages
Global corporations require the system in multiple language or dual language formats. This feature ensures that the problem solvers have a clear understanding in their native language of the questions being asked of them and gives more comprehensive answers to the management team.Configuration
