Webinar: Transforming Mistakes into Marvels

July 30, 2019
Legal and Compliance, Regulatory

July 30, 2019 | 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET

The ability to deliver products quickly with full confidence in quality can already feel like a balancing act between manufacturing and quality priorities. Add the unpredictable nature of mistakes to the equation, and the challenge of quickly shipping high-quality products increases exponentially. To err is human, and therefore inevitable. While mistakes are bound to occur in manufacturing, they don’t have to result in defects that reach your customer.

This webinar will explore how achieving zero defects is possible with a process in place to proactively address mistakes before they become defects. Attendees will learn about two lean concepts that help eliminate defects at the source: jidoka, which is the combined ability of workers and machines to identify errors and take quick countermeasures to make a process defect free, and poka-yoke, which is the prevention of inadvertent errors.

  1. Role of digitization in ensuring data integrity in manufacturing.
  2. Introduction to lean concepts jidoka and poka-yoke.
  3. Overview of inspection systems to support a poka-yoke program.
  4. Actions to take when the system identifies a signal for warning or shutdown.
  5. Key steps in implementing jidoka and developing a long-term strategy.
  6. How to make the most of a Statistical Process Control (SPC) program.
