Mistake Proofing (Poka Yoke) Training
Level of Difficulty
Beginner (no knowledge at all of the topic).
“Poka-Yoke” a Japanese term coined by Shiego Shingo in the 1960’s meaning “mistake-proofing”. It is a highly effective quality control tool. It stems from recognising that making mistakes is part of being human. A Poka-yoke removes or greatly reduces the opportunities for us to make mistakes. They can make a process run more smoothly, reduce defect rates, decrease takt time and even improve quality of life. The term was initially applied in the manufacturing world but today examples can be seen in all sectors and in many aspects of our lives. It can improve the yield and efficiency of many processes and above all reduce defect rates.
