Error Proofing Label process

#1
I work in a manufacturing company and we continue to have labeling errors on our product. I am looking for inexpensive ways of error proofing our labeling process. We have tried color color coding, but even that does not seem to be successful, we have also tried transparencies, but this still requires the human eye to catch any mistakes. With many different ethnicities and languages in our facilities, I am looking for any solutions to help error proof processes. Thanks

I agree we need more info to help. What kind of labeling errors are you seeing? Have you opened a CAPA for this problem (assuming your system has a CAPA process)?

Reminds me of a winery tour where they showed off a bottle of red wine that got a white wine label.

Is there anything on the product itself that can be detected by a scanner of some sort - or some sort of Braille dots that could be put on the product itself? If a bar code was included on the label (or I suppose if the scanner did OCR) then a scanner could "read" the product, and "read" the label see if they matched.
