With the Mistake Proofing training, you will be able to:
You will learn a systematic way to implement error-proof processes using Forced Control, Shutdown, Warning, Sensory Alert techniques. The course will stimulate creative thinking about making it impossible to make mistakes.
Mistake proofing is defined as an improvement technology that uses a device or procedure, to prevent (or eliminate) defects or equipment malfunction during normal processing.
Mistake-proofing devices enforce correct operations by eliminating choices that could lead to incorrect actions. These steps also could stop a process from creating errors or defects. These tools can prevent machine and product damage.
Mistake-proofing activities can and should be integrated with the lean tools of Quick-Changeover, 5S-visual-management, One-Piece-Flow, and Standard-Work. The possibilities for mistake-proofing are endless and typically involve very little investment in resources.
Mistake Proofing consist in using and adding techniques to prevent defects and detect defects as soon as possible, if one does occur.
Mistake Proofing and Poka-Yoke is often used as a synonymous term, although Poka-Yoke meaning is to eliminate product defects by preventing human errors (that are unintentional).
The participants will attend a theoretical training session to support the workshop implementation of Mistake-Proofing on a pilot process.
The Mistake-Proofing training workshop training workshop will be performed using specific templates and a benchmark example.
