Mistake Proofing (Poka-Yoke) - London
This course introduces participants to the concepts of mistake proofing in order to eliminate mistakes from workplace processes.
Zero Defects sounds like impossibility to most. Aren’t mistakes inevitable, especially where humans are involved? Zero Defects thinking is based on the principle that defects are preventable by controlling the inputs of a process so that it cannot produce defects – even when mistakes are made.
This ½ day course is an excellent way to begin your Mistake Proofing efforts. Classroom instruction alternates with shop floor exercises to identify and apply the lessons learned to practical shop floor issues based on real process problems or opportunities for improvement. This is a highly interactive session where participants can actively engage in the discussion and learning process.
Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
• Identify opportunities for errors and defects.
• Quickly identify various levels and functions of mistake proofing devices.
• Choose the appropriate method of mistake proofing to eliminate human and machine errors.
• Implement simple and effective mistake proofing devices.
