What is Poka-Yoke?

The Toyota Generation Framework is centered totally around greatest proficiency and blame free procedures. That is the thought behind Poka-Yoke.

Poka-Yoke (English: botch proofing): Fail safe gadgets in the generation procedure that naturally stop the line if there should arise an occurrence of an error.

Poka-Yoke is any piece of a manufacturing process that enables a Toyota part to stay away from (yokeru) botches (poka).

Its reason for existing is to dispose of deformities by counteracting, revising, or featuring mistakes as they happen – for instance, a dance that holds parts for handling may be altered to just enable them to be held in the right arrangement. In a more extensive sense, the term can allude to any behaviour-molding constraint designed into a procedure to forestall inaccurate activity by the user.

Mistake-sealing is a piece of the consistent change theory, or Kaizen.
