Error/Mistake Proofing During New Vehicle Launches 1999-01-1632

The engineering community is becoming increasingly aware of the significant benefits of performing error proofing on product and tooling designs. If a part or tooling can be designed or redesigned to allow for one-way assembly, the option of incorrect assembly at the plant is eliminated, making the process more robust.The goal of the error proofing exercise is to reduce operator decisions, eliminate misbuilds, and improve quality. Through participation in this type of exercise, all key stakeholders, including product, process, tooling, and production personnel, have greater opportunity to identify, prevent, and resolve potential production issues well in advance of launch.
