Mistake Proofing (Poka-Yoke)


The Poka-Yoke concept is to remove all potential causes of error through design, process or mistake proofing devices to ensure consistent process results. Poka-yoke helps minimize defects before they reach the customer. Important to realize Poka-yoke is not a solution to the defect problem. Investigation in the defect cause is essential to elimination.
