The usual responsibilities of an engineer or manager include problem solving and/or process troubleshooting. Using established and logical techniques can improve problem-solving skills. Becoming better problem solvers allows us to become more effective engineers or managers and increases our value to an organization.

Many production engineering, quality or service issues involve errors that occur at a particular step in a process or activity. Error Proofing involves using established principles and techniques to prevent, eliminate or minimize errors. Typically, engineers are responsible for product and/or process design. Work-station design and the sequencing of work activities are also typical functions of engineers, managers or production support personnel. This course will help you be more effective in identifying and applying error proofing at the design stage as well as during production.

Error Proofing is intended to provide practical information that will enable you and your organization develop and implement an effective approach to error proofing techniques and applications that help you:
     1. Understand error proofing principles & techniques
     2. Identify when error proofing is needed
     3. Select and apply error proofing methods
     4. Provide process, work flow or product designs that prevent errors

Error Proofing is a practical course that uses real world examples. It is intended to provide an understanding of error proofing methods and how to use them by looking into several scenarios and situations. This class can provide the tools for developing your problem solving skills as applied to error proofing and problem prevention.

The instructor for Error Proofing, Davis M. Woodruff, PE, CMC, has over three decades of real world experience with clients on 3 continents and in 35 states. He uses a practical approach based on ‘real world’ experiences.

The learning objectives are for participants to:
     1. Be able to more clearly define problems
     2. Know error proofing principles & techniques
     3. Be able to identify when error proofing is needed
     4. Be able to select error proofing methods
     5. Apply error proofing to your process(es)
