Poka-yoke (means "fail-safing" or "mistake-proofing" —
avoiding ( yokeru ) inadvertent errors ( poka )) is a behavior-shaping constraint, or a method of preventing errors by putting limits on how an operation can be performed in order to force the correct completion of the operation.
Andon is a manufacturing term referring to a signboard incorporating signal lights, audio alarms, and text or other displays installed at a workstation to notify management and other workers of a quality or process problem.
The alert can be activated manually by a worker, or may be activated automatically by the production equipment itself. Typically, it will incorporate both a visual indicator and an audible alarm.
An Andon system is one of the principle elements of the Jidoka quality-control method pioneered by Toyota and now part of the Lean methodology.
It gives the worker the ability to stop production when a defect is found, and immediately call for assistance.
Work is stopped until a solution has been found out. The alerts may be logged to a database so that they can be studied as part of a continuous-improvement program.
The system will typically indicate where the alert was generated, and may also provide a description of the trouble.
Modern Andon systems can include text, graphics, or audio elements.
Audio alerts may be done with coded tones, music with different tunes corresponding to the various alerts, or pre-recorded verbal messages.
A Production System that is steeped in the philosophy of the complete elimination of all wastes and that penetrates all aspects of production with this philosophy in pursuit of the most efficient production method.
