PlanDoCheckAdjust is a great tool for teams to manage activities throughout the Plan, Do, Check and Adjust problem-solving stages. Notifications are displayed for overdue actions and reports can be used to schedule review meetings, provide details on the problem statement and findings or be used to review actions in preparation for a review meeting.
Team members record issues with a problem statement (brief description, where occurring, time-frame and magnitude), the RASCIQ (Responsible, Approver, Support, Consult, Inform and Quality Review) model is used to record roles so as to ensure adequate resources are available and images can be added (by drag and drop) showing the before and after issue states.
A summary of activities and findings are recorded with a to-do list to assign tasks and monitor progress for each step of the Plan-Do-Check-Adjust problem solving cycle.
Please note;PlanDoCheckAdjust does not currently synchronize data with PDCA2Go.

Hidden Team and Issues Panel (with older PlanDoCheckAdjust versions 1.2 or earlier)
If you are using MacOS Sierra with an older version 1.2 or earlier of PlanDoCheckAdjust, you may find that the Team and Issues panel are hidden the first time you use PlanDoCheckAdjust. Move your cursor to the left hand side of the main window (it will change shape to a drag cursor style), click and drag to the right to open the panel. This issue is resolved in the current version of PlanDoCheckAdjust.
