|Mistake-Proofing for Manufacturing Processes|
Sponsored by: VMEC
An introduction to the values and techniques regarding the implementation of mistake-proofing (Poka-Yoke) and the "problem of human error". Participants will combine real-life examples and exercises to give insight on how they might apply mistake proofing in their own companies. The workshop will cover Poka-Yoke methods, device types, analysis tools, as well as error proofing and statistical process control (SPC). Participants will discuss the use of mistake-proofing processes using the "Anatomy of Mistake-Proofing" in manufacturing applications including inspection techniques, setting functions, and control methods to dovetail with other quality tools currently being applied, with and without the use of product design changes.
