A transmission failure was detected during road tests before the launch of a new VW light commercial vehicle. This team applied the 8D methodology, using DoE, Ishikawa diagram, priority matrix, finite elements analysis, simulations, and FMEA among other tools. As a result, the failure was solved and the launch date was met, avoiding 100 million euros in potential corporate losses, 7 million euros in potential warranty claims, and 3 million euros in million euros in machinery investment.
