Six Sigma Tools - Poka Yoke

It was a Japanese manufacturing engineer named Shigeo Shingo who developed the concept that revolutionized the standard career in Japan. Initially referred to as “fool-proofing” and later modified to “mistake proofing” and “fail to save” so workers weren’t offended, poka-yoke (pronounced “poh-Koh you-kay”) interprets into English as to keep away from (yoke RU) inadvertent errors (poka).
