Poka Yoke (Mistake Proofing)


This technique was introduced by Japanese manufacturing engineer Shigeo Shingo to achieve Zero Quality Control (ZQC). As one of the main elements of ZQC, poka yoke is used to detect/prevent defects from happening in the first place. This two-day programme takes a practical hands-on approach to implement an error proofing system in a systematic manner. Learner will learn how and why the system works, as well as how error proofing can achieve ZQC.
