Poka-Yoke: Mistake Proofing Fundamentals

May 4

Stop wasting time fixing problems over and over again. Implement mistake-proofing strategies and concepts into your organization today.

The poka-yoke concept may be implemented in many activity domains, such as selling, purchasing, or product development, where errors cost can be very high. Preventing errors is better than detecting them and much better than detecting faults. It is much more efficient to prevent errors than control them. To achieve a real control of quality, the variables that influence the product or process quality as a result of people's action should be checked. No amount of human inspection will eliminate defects because humans are poor inspectors. Therefore, it makes sense that leaders work to eliminate the potential for defects rather than focus on finding defects. Learn the steps to develop your error preventing devices and methods. Also, learn how poka-yoke paired with a Lean Six Sigma methodology is a powerful tool for increasing quality, productivity, and profit.

Learning Objectives

- You will be able to discuss why you would want to use Poka-Yoke in your process.

- You will be able to identify when to use Poka-Yoke.

- You will be able to explain how Poka-Yoke helps build quality in a process.

- You will be able to recognize the methodology for creating a Poka-Yoke.

Kate Livingstone has 10+ years of quality engineering experience in the logistics industry.
