Course details

Mistake Proofing, also known as Poka Yoke, is a powerful problem-solving technique that provides fast, accurate and effective solutions to most manufacturing-related problems. Its analysis methods can be used for all processes, whether they are technical or transactional.
Developed by Dr. Shigeo Shingo in 1961, it aims to achieve ultra-low defect levels by tackling human errors in the workplace head-on. Shown to be remarkably successful, Mistake Proofing programs and applications can now be found worldwide. This technique is most often deployed in production and design processes and is commonly integrated into many improvement programs and quality systems.
