ELSE Inc.'s Poka Yoke Presentation is designed to help you achieve quality at the source by performing Error Proofing and Mistake Proofing of the activities that create and support your product or service.

Small mistakes and defects may seem unimportant during the initial moment of production, but they eventually snowball and cause bigger problems later on. The guiding rule of "poka yoke" (or "fail-safe" in Japanese) is to stop mistakes even before they happen.

Through our Poka Yoke Presentation, you will be able to learn practical poka yoke steps that manufacturers can use on their production floor. This allows your workers to become problem-solvers as well as operators, therefore making better products and perfecting the process in the shortest time possible.

This presentation is supported by the Poka Yoke Game. We strongly recommend that they are used together during the training session, because this way your team can experience the true power of what they've learned.

The Poka Yoke Presentation will teach you how to increase quality and efficiency through preventive measures. The aim is to prevent imperfections by fixing mistakes before passing off the components to the next step, reducing the possibility of a defect occurring in the end-product.

Our Poka Yoke Presentation will provide you with a step-by-step game plan on how to apply these fail-safe techniques to enhance your company's efficiency and your products quality.

Briefly, Error Proofing and Mistake Proofing are techniques that help operators avoid mistakes in their work caused by choosing the wrong part, leaving out a part, installing a part backwards, etc.

In our Poka Yoke Presentation, you will learn that this principle involves the implementation of fail-safe ways methods that detect or prevent human and machine error at or near the source.

It provides instant feedback and prevention of quality problems.

  • Utilize Error Proofing features in design

Current Version Descriptions and Rights

Non-edit Versions there is no direct way to edit the text or any other feature of the materials. You can only use the materials in two ways; as is which includes the right to eliminate any slides you wish from the presentation or simulation game (though it would be less than helpful to do so with the games; and secondly you can use our materials and add slides of your own design to them, you may not however imply that those slides are the result of work conducted by ELSE Inc. These versions will remain as our standard base version.

Text Edit Versions with these versions you may translate, or adjust the materials to suit your needs, however you cannot redesign them in any way to become a totally unrelated product. You must also clearly indicate what you have changed in the slides and to what extent the material is no longer the material produced by ELSE Inc.

Additional materials added by you allow you to add your copyright to the material as well as your logo’s only were your materials are included.
