Our one day Poka Yoke training course will show you how to make errors, defects and mistakes either so 'visible' that you can detect them at source or even better eliminate them altogether? Poka Yoke is the lean manufacturing tool which forms the basis of the Zero Quality Control (ZQC) system for avoiding and eliminating mistakes, defects and errors. The term Poka Yoke is derived from the Japanese words 'Poka' meaning inadvertent mistake and 'yokeru' meaning to avoid.

Course Overview

How can we make errors, defects and mistakes either so visible that we can detect them at source or even better eliminate them altogether?

The answer is by applying Poka Yoke techniques.

Poka Yoke is the lean manufacturing tool which forms the basis of the Zero Quality Control (ZQC) system for avoiding and eliminating mistakes, defects and errors. The term Poka Yoke is derived from the Japanese words ‘Poka’ meaning inadvertent mistake and ‘yokeru’ – meaning to avoid.

This one day practical poka yoke training course is delivered in a fun, innovative manner with the delegates being required to assemble 'real' products as part of the course. By application of the theory from the course, delegates can see first hand how an array of mistake–proofing techniques and devices can virtually eliminate the opportunity for errors before they become defects. A truly inspirational experience.

This course is suitable for all production operators, supervisors, managers, continuous improvement engineers, quality engineers and production engineers.
