The lessons of Deming, Shingo and the concepts of Kaizen, FMEA, value stream mapping, poka-yoke
, Kanban, and Lean became our obsession.
The "detect and stop" element consists of visual standards and mistake-proofing techniques like Poka-yoke
(Drew et al.
It's the perfect poka-yoke
control to reduce defects, rework, and redundant inspections and testing.
L'approche Lean propose d'utiliser une serie d'outils varies pour reduire certains gaspillages, dont les kanbans, les 5 S, les poka-yoke
, la methode SMED, les andons et le Kaizen blitz.
The light-directed methodology is an effective poka-yoke
(error proofing) device ensuring that operators select the correct parts and quantity of each required for the active Bill of Materials.
We use analysis results to drive to failure root cause and determine preventative corrective actions via design and poka-yoke
in order to ensure our products have the highest level of quality and reliability built into the design prior to entering production.
The term poka-yoke
roughly translates to "mistake-proofing" or "to avoid inadvertent errors.
Additional tooling may also be helpful to poka-yoke
or mistake-proof an operation.
In particular, poka-yoke
most often is associated with elements of product and process design which prevent incorrect worker behaviors (i.
The real killers of higher paving manufacturing jobs come from two sources: Poka-yoke
Designing and implementing manufacturing cells requires many engineering skills including machine design (ergonomics and safety), tooling design (rapid load/unload and quick changing), cutting tool design, process design (so machining times are less than cycle times), poka-yoke
and decoupler designs (for zero defects and operator assistance and materials handling).
Shigeo Shingo, in his book A Study of the Toyota Production System (Productivity Press, 1989), discusses the use of poka-yoke
devices (error-prevention devices) as a way to prevent the occurrence of defects.
