Mistake-Proofing

Error-proofing is vitally essential to a smooth operation, cost-savings and retention of sanity in the workplace. The Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center is here to help you stay on top of it!

It’s the small mistakes that can sometimes kill you. Various mistake-proofing tools and techniques establish a better baseline for error-free processes. This concept involves limiting the number of possible incorrect options, resulting in fewer (or no) user errors. It can involve using checklists, quality checks, part or tool design, machine modification, setting tolerance limits and so forth.

When it comes to mistake-proofing, at the Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center it’s not a joke! Let us help you eliminate errors before they occur. Learn more now; earn more later!
