Poke Yoke Techniques for early Defect Detection
« on: November 04, 2015, 07:44:13 pm »
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 introducing
poka-yoke (mistake-proofing) into our software process, we have been able to prevent literally hundreds of
software localization defects from reaching our customers.
