Jidoka

Jidoka

a Japanese term used to describe the stopping of a process if an error is detected either in the process or in the product. Based in part on team working and empowerment, the application of the Jidoka allows an employee to stop a process, so that the error can be analysed and corrected so that it does not occur again. The process will then be restarted. See QUALITY, LEAN MANUFACTURING, JUST-IN-TIME (JIT) SYSTEM.

Por ejemplo: el SMED o Single Minute Exchange of Die, desarrollada por Shigeo Shingo (1991, 2003), permite reducir drasticamente el tiempo de preparacion de un cambio de referencia; el sistema de planificacion Kanban, desarrollado por Taiichi Ohno (1991), sirve para controlar la cadena logistica desde un punto de vista de la produccion siguiendo un enfoque pull; el Jidoka (Ohno, 1991), o automatizacion con un toque humano, permite que los procesos tengan su propio autocontrol de calidad solucionando los problemas en el momento que se producen e impidiendo que estos se propaguen aguas abajo en la cadena productiva; etc.
Visual aids that can support this effort include a visual scoreboard, Jidoka lights, work areas designated by taped or painted lines, colorcoded ESD workspaces and Kanban squares.
Some of much practiced tools are Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) methodologies, including Six Sigma, Value Stream Analysis, Jidoka, Kiazen and Lean6.

If we represent the tools used in the procedures of Lean concept design as a house--a firm creation of human work, and if we should explain the Lean concept as parts of the house, then the supporting pillars would be Just-In-Time and Jidoka (or making quality at source).

A autonomacao ou jidoka surgiu em 1926, quando Sakichi Toyota lancou um tear capaz de parar automaticamente quando um dos fios se rompesse ou quando fosse atingida a quantidade programada de tecido.
