What is Mistake-Proofing (Poka Yoke)?
Mistakes seem to happen at the worst time. At work, just before a critical shipment, an inadvertent mistake causes the entire shipment to be rejected. Or at home, just before leaving for a long anticipated vacation, "Murphy's Laws" intervene, and a series of seemingly unavoidable mistakes delays our departure.
Can we defeat Murphy's Laws? Can we eliminate these costly mistakes? Probably not totally, but the use of mistaking-proofing tools and techniques will put an end to many of the repetitive, costly mistakes that rob us of time and money both at home and at work.
Mistake-Proofing is more than just incremental improvements or trying harder to do a better job. Mistake-Proofing techniques don't just reduce the chance of making errors, they
can eliminate the possibility for error altogether.
