Using Poka-Yoke Techniques for Early Defect Detection

  title={Using Poka-Yoke Techniques for Early Defect Detection},
  author={Harry Robinson},
Poka-yoke is a quality assurance technique developed by Japanese manufacturing engineer Shigeo Shingo. The aim of poka-yoke is to eliminate defects in a product by preventing or correcting mistakes as early as possible. Poka-yoke has been used most frequently in manufacturing environments. Hewlett Packard currently develops its Common Desktop Environment software to run in twelve locales or languages. Traditional testing of this localized software is technically difficult and time-consuming. By…

Some Spreadsheet Poka-Yoke
Whilst not all spreadsheet defects are structural in nature, poor layout choices can compromise spreadsheet quality. These defects may be avoided at the development stage by some simple mistake
A Poka-Yoke application in rubber industry
Quality problems and defect products are always issues that have to be considered and eliminated in a manufacturing facility. Human effect in production is considered as one of most important
A Systematic Literature Review of Poka-Yoke and Novel Approach to Theoretical Aspects
The authors adopt the idea of PY as a lean tool which allows “eliminating the cause of error,” and engage in a fundamental PY research in order to determine A Systematic Literature Review of Poka-Yoke.
Infallibility ( Poka-Yoke ) Fundamentals for Improving Production Processes , Case Study : An Automotive Parts Manufacturing Company
In production processes, quality is defined in terms of defects and sigma level wastes. In order to achieve zero level wastes, it is required that production processes’ sigma levels be increased
Quantitative Validation of Poka-Yoke Approach for HQLS Using Regression Coefficient and Analysis of Variance
Regression analysis showed that Poka-Yoke has a greater impact on software quality that uses the current state of the art software development models, and recommend usage of techniques for mistake proofing for overall software performance.
Broadening the Concept of Poka Yoke Beyond Automotive Industry
The article will contribute to the recognition of poka yoke systems in fields where, although error proofing systems are used, no link to the poka Yoke method was made by the authors, creators and users.
