POKA YOKE (Mistake Proofing)


Mistake Proofing, Poka Yoke, or error proofing as some people call it, refers to techniques that make it impossible to make mistakes.  Mistake-Proofing techniques can drive defects out of products and processes and substantially improve quality and reliability.  


Poka-Yoke is fool proofing, which is the basis of the Zero Quality Control (ZQC) approach, which is a technique for avoiding and eliminating mistakes. Generally this technique is used in manufacturing process but has much wider uses, such as; offices - order and invoice processing, hospitals - drug dispensing, aircraft maintenance - particularly with processes having the potential of inducing catastrophic in-service failures.


Mistake proofing involves innovative thinking coupled with a solid understanding of forced control, shutdown, warning, and sensory alert techniques and strategies.  Mistake Proofing is best taught through examples. Mistake-Proof It! training includes a comprehensive background on techniques as well as the steps required to implement those techniques.  But the most valuable feature of this training course is the hundreds of examples of Mistake-Proofing included throughout the training.
