Poka-Yoke also known as mistake proofing or error proofing can be preventative or indicative in nature. Whether it is a device or piece of machinery that prevents the next step in the process from taking place until the previous step has been properly executed or an alert that indicates that a mistake has been made, we can find many existing examples.
Pressing the brake pedal in order to start the ignition of a car, the safety clamp being on as the default setting of BBQ starters, warning or confirmation pop-up windows on computers when deleting folders or auto-locking nozzles for chemical cleaning products are just a few examples in every day life.
Error proofing is a large component of quality assurance and a competitive edge for companies that recognize the importance of it. How can you build error proofing into your processes and systems?
