Hi! All the coves. I'm a new user here and I found this site is very informative.

I had some problem in understanding of Clause 7.3.2.2 Note which stated that " The manufacturing process design includes the use of error-proofing methods to a degree appropriate to the magnitude of the problems and commensurate with the risks encounter"

What is error-profing methods? Can anybody give some examples?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Cove :bigwave:

Error-proofing is a part of process design intended to prevent mistakes from happening. It generally involves devising methods that won't allow an action or process step to be performed incorrectly. One example is a part holding fixture that will only allow the part to be inserted or held one way--the correct way.

Do a search of the Cove, starting with the "Similar Threads" shown towards the bottom of this page--you'll find lots of information on the subject. And post again if you have specific questions.

Thanks,

I got a clearer picture and understanding on this. I still in doubt whether that all the realization process need to have error-proofing?

Not everything "requires" it, however, it should be a desirable goal. Any process where there is a feasible and cost effective error-proofing solution should at least consider it.
