Mistake Proofing—PokaYoka

One of the things I remember being mentioned in our PIUSS module breifly was the work Poka Yoka. Which means to remove any mistake in the process which exist. One can do so in may ways such as training the labours or standardisation, or negative consequence for the labour for doing something wrong, or making the process so good that even if the labourer is day dreaming it would not affect his or her work.

Its a very interesting concept. I like it as much as my new developed affinity towards spc. Right now I am having a special cause variation in my working itself. As u might have read in my earlier blog, I am not feeling well which has been affecting my productivity. I am on medication so hopefully should feel better soon!!

I think the plane building competition in which both teams competing were in control has so far been the best experience I had in wmg. Actually doing the excercise yourself gives you great understanding of the process and the formulas we used to calculate the mean and standard deviation and so on. I also loved the case study which Professor Knowles had worked on in the candy factory which faced problems of the air bubbles.
