Error Proofing (Poka Yoke) Presentation


Price: $74.99

ELSE Inc.’s Error Proofing 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.


The objectives of this training material are:

  • Utilize Error Proofing features in design
  • Utilize Error Proofing as a preventative tool
  • Apply Poka-Yoke methods as control on identified issues
    • Reduce and/or eliminate process errors from occurring
    • Reduce and/or eliminate process defects from occurring


  • Poka Yoke Basics
    • Definition
    • Error Proofing vs. Mistake Proofing
    • Basic Error Proofing Process
    • Causes for Errors
  • Error Proofing Strategies
  • Error Proofing Examples
  • Case Studies
  • Poka Yoke Implementation
  • Applicability and Conclusions

Based on the above, you can clearly see the benefits of our Poka Yoke Presentation and training material, about Error Proofing and Mistake Proofing. It offers not only the theoretical components of the training, but also the step-by-step instructions that constitute the roadmap of implementing quality at the source.

Moreover, it offers the chance of discussing case studies and many concrete examples.
