Mistake proofing, also known as Poka Yoke, helps to better ensure a high-performing work environment where rhuman errors and defects are not accepted. Join us for a one-day workshop that mixes classroom and hands-on activity to teach or refresh knowledge of effectively implementing the Poka Yoke methodology developed by Shigeo Shingo of Toyota. A simple simulation allows participants to experience Shingo's methodology first-hand. This makes for an informative, interesting day of training. We begin the day with understanding the 3 levels of Poka Yoke and the relationship between errors and defects. Participants are encouraged to bring a defect from work for discussion and kicking off the 5-step Poka Yoke process. Workshop topics covered: -Meaning and origins of Poka Yoke -Types of errors -Understanding the relationship between errors and defects and conditions that allow mistakes to occur -Three levels of Poka Yoke and the 5-step approach -Standardizing the Poka Yoke process -Examples of Poka Yoke application -Leading a team through the Poka Yoke improvement process -Applying what we've learned
