Error Proofing/Problem Solving Simulation (minimum order quantity = 5)


This training kit includes simulations for both Error Proofing and Problem Solving. The kit is designed for up to three teams (six associates per team) who have been trained in Problem Solving Tools, and should be facilitated by an experienced Team & Problem Solving Trainer. The Simulation gives the team a chance to use their Problem Solving Tools and Error Proofing techniques in a simulated, yet "business-like" environment, and confirms their understanding of these techniques through the use of team report-out activities.

Problem Solving:
This simulation provides an opportunity to actually use the following tools:

  • Problem Definition 
  • Fishbone Diagram and Multi-voting 
  • 5 Whys 
  • Brainstorming 
  • Developing an Action Plan

This exercise takes approximately 3 hours to complete.


Error Proofing:
After teams have been trained in Problem Solving, this Error Proofing Simulation is to be used as part of an Error/Mistake Proofing class. This exercise teaches the team how to apply the following Error Proofing techniques:

  • Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFMA) 
  • Detection in Station 
  • Successive Checking

This exercise takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete.
