Lean Defect Reduction

Defect reduction project involves Poka Yoke, which literally translates to “mistake proofing” in Japanese. It is a tool that company can use to minimize errors, mistakes, and defects.  Poka Yoke actually falls under the larger category of “zero defects” or “total quality.”  The Poka Yoke project will cover both the general defect-prevention techniques and specific Poka Yoke tools.
