Awareness: Having the forethought that a mistake can be made, communicating the potential, and planning the design of the product or process to detect or prevent it.
Detection: Allowing the mistake to happen but providing some means of detecting it and alerting someone so that we fix it before sending it to our customer.
Prevention: Not allowing the possibility for the mistake to occur in the first place.
Error Proofing is the activity of awareness, detection, and prevention of errors which adversely affect:
Our customers (defects)
Our people (injuries)
and result in WASTE!
