Poka Yoke

LP125 – Smart Tool Holder

Part No. 51125

Your workers shouldn’t have to look for or question which tool to use. Our smart Poka Yoke and 5S Tool tells you when to use the tool and make sure you have used it. It also makes sure you put it back, so that it doesn’t get lost. Smart huh?

Make it hard to make mistakes

Give your workers good tools to make it easy for them to do the right thing. Don’t take responsibility away from your workers, but make it hard to make mistakes, creating the most important element in an effective production process – commitment. Commitment is the core of quality assurance, Poka Yoke (ポカヨケ), that offers both high quality and short lead times. Don’t stop production unnecessarily.
