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 and administrative applications to dovetail with other quality tools currently being applied.

Who Should Attend? This workshop is intended for those responsible for improving quality and productivity in manufacturing and office operations.  Participants are encouraged to bring an item or concept they believe is in need of mistake-proofing from their place of work.
